I'm confused by the two separate error messages you posted, but loking at the first one, it seems to indicate that the error came from the rsync-3.0.7 running on the remote end. Line 543 of rsync.c in v3.0.7 is:
so it looks like something on the remote end is causing an unexpected exit.
I suggest as a first step you upgrade to v3.0.7 on your machine and retry, to see if you get better diagnostic info. Then, follow the rsync debugging guide to track down the real failure.
Is the name of the file it aborts on really
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/? That's a mighty weird filename. I'd first suspect that is causing the failure.
