Storing the repository on the NAS may be what's wrong. Others have
reported problems before with repositories stored on various network
shares, which were resolved when serving the repository from a local
hard disk. If you receive this permission denied error every time,
that makes it easy to test. Move the repository to disk local to the
server and try again. If that works, you have your answer.
