    In GUI, uploading files by going to "Local" storage, tab "Contents", and clicking "Upload" works as expected.

    But what about downloading? There's no option in GUI nor by right-clicking a file, not even in recent 5.3 release. Is only way to download files using CLI with SCP or the like?

    In addition to the use case of 'download to my workstation', I have a use case that once a backup is done, I need to copy the backup file to a central server.

    For the file upload idea ...
    a simple username (password?) box with the destination location would be good to have.
    (I have a script setup on the PVE host to calculate the latest version of the backup for a particular VMID and then scp it the central location)

    there is no download option - in general, you can use SSH/SCP. for backups, you can also setup a hook script - many people use this for moving backups to their final location. see the vzdump documentation and check out the example script that's shipped with pve-manager.
