Looks pretty like a running balance and quota.

Would you please try with balance disabled (temporarily) with
skip_balance mount option to see if it works.

If it works, then either try resume balance, or just cancel the balance.

Nowadays balance is not needed routinely, especially when you still have
unallocated space and enabled quota.
