I've the identical problem; I do believe it's asking for the encryption password, though in my case, could not recall encrypting the backup and I haven’t entered it in Splash ID. I ended up using an external program to decrypt the password – “iPhone Backup Password Recovery" It worked like a charm. I only downloaded its trial version. With that it gave me the first three letters and the rest were blocked out with ***. The result is just as 123***. This however was enough for me to recall the password.
Thank “iPhone Backup Password Recovery"!
