Backup pipeline update

An important change in the execution logic of rsnapshot_backup backup pipelines: now the jobs at the data synchronization stage are executed with the allow_failure GitLab CI key.

Previously, we did not proceed to the next step – the rotation of backups – due to the risks that in case of data synchronization errors, the remaining valid data could be completely rotated.

But, since the monitoring of backup execution started working stably (gitlab pipelines -> alerta), the probability of such disappearance is low, so we decided that it is better to rotate even partially (not all elements of the backup list were successful) synchronized data.
