Issue with SSH backup

OS type and version Ubuntu 16.04.7
Virtualmin version 6.17-3


I have the following issue with backups

Failed to connect to SSH server :’s password: This service allows sftp connections only.

Backup failed! See the progress output above for the reason why.

The destination is a CHROOTed user that is restricted to internal-sftp only for this user account. If I test the connection using filezilla I am able to transfer files without issue.
Can someone help me with what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

I have worked out that the target was missing a number of commands. It now has the ability to ls, rm, mkdir, date.

However now I get the error
Failed to connect to SSH server : XX@XX’s password: scp: /backup/XX-backup/daily-2022-04-14/virtualmin-copy-test.XX: No such file or directory

It looks like it is trying to transfer a test file which is failing? If I attempt to create files using WinSCP it works fine (i.e. is there a specific command that it is using here?)
