If rsync is seeing that "Rejected" that explains the error.

This is a problem with ssh.  You need to get the /bin/true test to
work with no resulting output so that rsync doesn't read garbage
when it connects with the remote host.

Does your sshd on allow connections by user root?
See  PermitRootLogin  in the sshd man page.

Can you do the /bin/true test successfully as a non-root user?
