A possible explanation is if the single-quotes are being retained in the
--exclude values instead of being removed by whatever shell you are using for

So rsync tries to exclude   '/proc/'  instead of  /proc/

In your case, the quotes aren't even needed since you don't have wildcards,
shell metachars, or whitespace in those path values.

Remove the single-quotes and see if that helps.  If it does, then either your
shell has a problem or they weren't really single-quotes to begin with.
