Following this upgrade I accepted to install I spent the evening cursing.
The system started up and services were accessible as usual, but I couldn’t login to the admin Web UI. It just came up with a red box message:
"System is getting ready. Please log in later."
This went on for several hours. I could access an SSH terminal and check the logs and gather data, but I couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t let me in. Everytime I tried it generated a syslog entry:
DiskStation login.cgi: login.cpp:211 System is not ready
I checked running services, restarting them and nothing. Disable Google authentication, still no joy.

So I gave up on it and thought I’d revisit it today.
Then I received this email at about 3pm today.
DiskStation has finished checking the consistency on system volume (Root). The system is now ready for use.
and now I can logon like nothing happened.
Today it’s been 6 days since I upgraded to DSM 6.1.6-15266 and I’ve not been able to logon because of the same symptoms. More googling ensued until I came across this comment by delapaco on a similar post here: https://www.supportmyidea.com/cant-login-synology-dsm-system-getting-ready-please-log-later/
So I ran the first two steps and was finally able to successfully login!
$ sudo synobootseq --set-boot-done
$ sudo synobootseq --is-ready
But following a reboot it needed this process repeating so I could logon. Very strange. So I’m probably going to have to report this to Synology and see if there’s a fox for it.
