This output from the receiving machine indicates that it is running the
File::RsyncP perl module, not rsync 3.0.3. Are you using BackupPC
(which uses File::RsyncP) on the receiver? If so, you might want to ask
the BackupPC people for help.

File::RsyncP only supports protocol 28.

That typically means the network connection dropped. See the third item
on http://rsync.samba.org/issues.html .
