Look at your /etc/passwd file. For example here is a snippet from mine:

/etc/passwd:

nobody:x:99:99:Nobody:/:/sbin/nologin
techlist:x:505:505::/home/techlist:/bin/bash

user nobody has no shell. If I su to nobody, I get "This account is currently 
not available" message. 

But I can su to techlist, since it has a valid shell (ie. bash). Edit that 
file for the correct user.

Also: man nologin
