Umbilical disconnected accidentally.

not surprised you can see a slight rocking of the strongback.

Does that mean a command was issued by mistake (wasn't that covered in the dry run?!) or does it mean that equipment malfunctioned?

ISS crew informed of scrub by CAPCOM--they had not heard the scrub on the streaming feed.  Time to go to bed.
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

There was no second stage installed for the hot fire a few weeks ago, so it wouldn't have been tested then.  Maybe there just wasn't enough wind last week during the dry for the failure to happen.

I think you're just seeing camera sway. Both the vehicle & strongback are moving in sync

Nice catch!  Someone let the control room know!   :)

Also note that the umbilical mast moved, but not the strongback.

Also cool to see how much shorter the vehicle has become after LOX tanking. :D

I think the strongback moved too, compare against the rocks on the beach. just not as far?

Looks to me like it did, the entire thing seems to twist. The side we can't see moved back.

Yes, a twist.  The nearest part did not move.  The furthest part did.  Interesting.
