Do you have another system you could try this transfer with via SSH with on the local network?

Given that the local transfer works fine, I would suggest checking the hardware and file system integrity on the remote machine. In terms of hardware checking the memory and disks would be a top priority.

Also, you could try moving the partial file out of the way and also not using the partial option and transferring again?

Hope that helps
