The error seems that something with the login , Can you reset the password of the old server and try the same again. (transfer the account using the following WHM transfer option "Copy account from another server with account password" )

Also Confirm /tmp is not full and have enough space

It appears you are using the 'Copy an account from another server with account password' feature. This feature is a last ditch effort to perform the transfer.

If you have access to a cPanel account on the other server you should login directly to that other cPanel server and download a full back. This full backup can then be used by the Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file feature in WHM to restore the account on the local server.

If you have root access to the other server then you should use the 'Copy an account from another server' feature.
