Seem there is a problem how we compute the repository - the datastore part is missing.
It should look like <user at pbs@<IP>:<datastore>. For example, if your datastore
name is 'store1':

--repository proxmox at pbs@

You can test easily if that works with:

# proxmox-backup-client snapshots --repository proxmox at pbs@

Please can you show post the pbs storage configuration?
