Solution Confirmed

After a lot of research, reading and trial and error I've got a solution / answer to my problem.

I check'd my ssh log files for errors and found this error;
"Oct 26 16:50:31 ubuntu-avbkup sshd[2024]: fatal: Unable to negotiate with port 55751: no matching key exchange method found. Their offer: diffie-hellman-group1-sha1,diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1 [preauth]"

I added the following lines to my sshd_config file;
"KexAlgorithms +diffie-hellman-group1-sha1"
"KexAlgorithms +diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1"

I was still getting the "Algorithm negotiation fail" message but I got a different error message in my ssh log file:
"Unable to negotiate with port 34976: no matching cipher found. Their offer: aes128-cbc,3des-cbc,blowfish-cbc [preauth]"

I had to add another line to my sshd_config file:
"Ciphers aes128-cbc,3des-cbc,blowfish-cbc"

Now my backup files are being uploaded to my Ubuntu Server via SFTP.
