I note that those are not rsync errors, so something is wrong with your
script.  Did it chdir to the right directory?  Did Dropbox unmount on

building file list ... ERROR: buffer overflow in recv_rules [Receiver]

This likely indicates a corrupted data stream since the remote receiver got
a bog integer at that point.  Did something in the ssh login output
something?  You should try some cron-run ssh commands and look for clues
(e.g. "ssh -i /path/keyfile echo OK" or similar).
