--- Comment #5 from Dave Gordon <dg32768 at zoho.eu> ---
I think you need to add "--no-implied-dirs" to get the behaviour you want.

The issue is that the contents list contains /a/b/c, so problems with that
specific file are suppressed by "--ignore-missing-args", but /a/b is not
a missing argument, it's a missing implied directory. Adding the extra flag
means that it won't be (implicitly) transferred, but would instead be created
on the destination if necessary. Then you just get a warning about the file
that's vanished:

$ rsync -slt --delete-missing-args --files-from=list src trg
file has vanished: ".../src/a/b"
ABORTING due to invalid path from sender: a/b/c
rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at generator.c(1270)

$ rsync -slt --delete-missing-args --no-implied-dirs --files-from=list src trg
file has vanished: ".../src/a/b"
rsync warning: some files vanished before they could be transferred (code 24)
at main.c(1183) [sender=3.1.1]
