I think that's your problem -- env.user should be a string and not a
list, and indeed, this is what paramiko is complaining about :)
env.hosts *should* be a list, so you're correct there, but env.user is
intended to be a single username. I'm hopeful that making that one
change will get things working correctly for you.
It's a little frustrating that the error is comparatively opaque, it
took me a couple read-throughs for the bits I highlighted above to
click together. I'm not usually a fan of premature type-checking, but
I'll make a note of this in case I think it's worth throwing a line or
two in Fabric to look for this situation :)
Let me know if that was it!
