i'm sorry, but:

$ rsync --version
rsync version 2.4.6  protocol version 24

Written by Andrew Tridgell and Paul Mackerras

$ rsync --help | grep -i from
     --exclude-from=FILE     exclude patterns listed in FILE
     --include-from=FILE     don't exclude patterns listed in FILE
     --password-file=FILE    get password from FILE

i have no option "--files-from=". i can't check.
try so:
