Ripping directly from a protected optical disk requires an unsupported 3rd-party library (problem 1). Even if you have that library installed, there is no guarantee that it will work for all disks; that is one of the reasons it stopped being supported almost 12 years ago.

Use of actually ripping tools, like MakeMKV, is recommended.

Problem 2 would show up later, if you're using using the version of handbrake found in the ubuntu repository... It's been broken-by-design for a long time.

A BUP file contains no video information.
