Yes, that was the problem. After fixing the permissions, I initiated another
mirror operation that was able to sync everything.
The issue was that A had restricted access and a branch 'B' was created from A
for public use. Since A was missing in the mirrored branch, the mirror operation
However even though the error happened due to incorrect authentication scripts,
the error message should have included some details about the problem. When I
googled for this generic error message, there was lot of crap but no solution. I
had to spend almost half a day to narrow down this issue.

Access restrictions are not versioned with the data, they are read
from the configuration at the moment one wants to access the data.
Therefore it should make no difference when your folder A was created
and if the user used to sync now still can't read folder A, then your
access configuration is just wrong and needs to be tuned.
The easiest thing to test would be to create a new user just for
syncing an give him full access to everything.
