You only need to pass --delete to rsync. (You can also pass --delete
to mtx-update.)
But you need to make sure that you fetch everything in a single call to rsync.

rsync -av --delete first/ one
rsync -av --delete second/ one

won't work, you need to use

rsync -av --delete first/ second/ one


(However, it's also possible that I forget to delete some things from
the server.)
