I received the same error. It was caused by expired password on the target server.

Bug reports without an attached log file are usually useless.
in recived this error when I used:
open scp://user@server -privatekey=C:\myprivatekey.pkk
I resolved in this way
open sftp://user@server -privatekey=C:\myprivatekey.pkk
Or you can simply login to Checkpoint GW via SSH and put this command in (in expert mode):
chsh -s /bin/bash admin
you probably in the clish mode thats why its not letting you download in the bash.
login in to the GW under user management > users > unlock the screen from above
for example if you use admin account double click the admin there you can change the shell to /bin/bash
Now goto your winscp and download...!!
There we go..!!
I got this error after importing sites into a new machine, and after failing to log in several times, I checked the settings. I saw it was set to SSH, rather than SFTP, as intended.
just need to specify !requiretty in /etc/sudoders
Error skipping startup message. Your shell is probably incompatible with the application (BASH is recommended).
I found that our problem was the user was using SCP and sudo, and that sshd required a TTY in order to perform this action.
I dont have a clue about this error, it just happens randomly on some machines and I'm too freakin lazy to fix it, or even find out the true reason.
I get this error:

Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server sent command exit status 0.
I then noticed my user was an FTP user and did not have shell access. This took me a while to figure out and I am reporting this here for users in the future. I may still have issues because I have to wait until shell access is granted before I can test this again.
