Electrs permanently 'waiting for bitcoin node to finish syncing'

Bitcoin node installed and fully synced. Electrs subsequently installed, but remains stuck in ‘waiting for bitcoin node to finish syncing’ state. Have tried as far as uninstalling electrs, restarting node, and redownloading electrs with no improvement. What is happening here?

Have you tried not messing with it for 24 hours or so.
It needs to create its database.

Agree with @my_bitcoin, best to leave it for some time.
