this is a regression in the latest round of security updates. The
problem is actually a fix for a data loss issue, but now the server
tries to fsync() files it didn't touch before during recovery.
Non-recovery startup is not affected.

Upstream is working on a fix, we will push out an updated package

Until then, the above is the one of the possible workarounds. Once the
server successfully started, you can reenable SSL.
