In auto.master, the first field is a directory, so it should be "/backup".

Debian's documentation says you shouldn't need to prefix UUID with a 
':', so remove that from auto.backup if the configuration you described 
doesn't work.  Alternatively, you could specify its location as 
":/dev/disk/by-uuid/<the disk id>".
