Nodes stay Syncing after update

Today we have updated a cluster of three nodes. After the update, the master and one of the two nodes have started to attack the DB of the third node as if it were the master, while in the cluster state they were in 'syncing' mode instead of 'active' mode that only the last node in that state has been left.

In the logs of the first two servers we have obtained the following:

Jul 1 16:51:46 pmgmail1 pmgmirror [32177]: database sync 'pmgmail2' failed - command 'rsync' --rsh = ssh -l root -o BatchMode = yes -o HostKeyAlias = pmgmail2 '-q --timeout 10' [xxxx]: / var / spool / pmg '/ var / spool / pmg --files-from /tmp/quarantinefilelist.32177' failed: exit code 23

The file /tmp/quarantinefilelist.32177 does not exist on any of the three servers.
