I still haven't received an answer, we have dealt with the main task or not and which option is right for you.
Just in case, I bring a few and I hope for your detailed answers
did we solve your problem?
If not, then specifically on the code above, write what does not work.

I tried to divide the problem into its component parts. In the first, you need to find the desired directory.
Forget about its contents for now. Write which of the given examples finds the correct directory.
ls -pt | grep -Em1 '[0-9]{8}/$'
ls -pt | grep -m1 '[0-9]*/$'

Here is my script, and I try every command you mention but it always copy all directories not content of latest with 8 digit number pattern!

DATE=`date +%Y%m%d -d "1 days ago"`



mkdir -p '/app/'${DATE}''

lftp -u $USER,$PASS $HOST <<EOF
set ftp:ssl-protect-data true
set ftp:ssl-force true
set ssl:verify-certificate no

mirror --include "$(ls -pt | grep -Em1 '[0-9]{8}/$')"*



expected output:

I understood what the problem was. We cannot define a locally remote directory
