Let me rescue the XML as you've posted it.

<domainbackup>
    <disk name='/var/lib/libvirt/images/lubuntu2.qcow2' type='file'>
    <target file='$PWD/scratch1.img'/>
    <driver type='raw'/>
    </disk>
    <disk name='/var/lib/libvirt/images/lubuntu2-1.qcow2' type='file'>
      <target file='$PWD/scratch2.img'/>
      <driver type='raw'/>
    </disk>
</domainbackup>


So there are multiple issues here.

Firstly please refer to the XML documentation, because the mistakes you
have in your are actually documented properly:

https://libvirt.org/formatbackup.html

Problems:

1) Missing <disks> container around the individual <disk> elements
2) <disk name=' attribute must contain the disk target (such as 'vda',
   'vdb' refering to the disk in the domain definition, paths are not
   allowed. This fact is mentioned in the docs.
3) If the <target file=' paths are not examples, but you really have
   $PWD in there, note that neither virsh nor libvirt will replace it
   with the working directory. The XML is used as-is. This then violates
   the rule that paths must start with a /.

So the proper XML then is. Obviously you need to make sure that it's
what you actually meant ...

<domainbackup>
  <disks>
    <disk name='hda' type='file'>
      <target file='/path/scratch1.img'/>
      <driver type='raw'/>
    </disk>
    <disk name='hdc' type='file'>
      <target file='/path/scratch2.img'/>
      <driver type='raw'/>
    </disk>
  </disks>
</domainbackup>


e.g. the output files will be raw and not qcow2.
