vsftp Error -203: miscellaneous error occurred while trying to login to the host

Your ftp user needs to have a home directory. 

Try creating your user this way instead:

sudo useradd -d /home/ftpusername -m ftpusername

sudo passwd ftpusername

Ps. If you need to delete your existing user, use:

sudo userdel ftpusername
