    - you updated your old plesk to the newest patchlevel via updater?
    - is ssh daemon running on port 22?

    Your problem is that your username "mattskiboo123" does not have priviledges on the old box to allow the migration manager to work. To solve this problem, give your user "root" priviledges:

    CAUTION: only edit the sudo file with the visudo command:

    to give your login user id: access to sudo:

    add the following line (use the format of the example in the sudo file)
    "user" ALL=(ALL) ALL
