It looks like you don't have the --delete in there (which you should have
to keep identical copies on both sides, but I don't know your situation so
take that with a grain of salt), so based on that, I would guess you
*might* have a full disk on the machine that you are backing up to.

You'll get the permission problems because a full disk will prevent you
from adding anymore files onto it.
