Well, I think my Dash is borked. I had the same update problem, so I used the USB update method. The update with the USB went perfectly fine, and all was well for awhile, then I needed to move the Dash to my bedside after I got it all configured.
Unplugged it, then moved to bedside and plugged it back in, now all I'm getting is a white screen that fades out to black and fades back to white. Won't start. Even holding the button as it boots for a hard reset won't get it going again.

It's like I never created the account... but my dash still shows my username. I tried to re-register and got the same error you did. Doesn't help that I can't de-register the dash, it's still logged into the account name.
I had this same problem just now, can't log into my account anymore.
Now I'm starting to wonder if Sony is remotely bricking the units for installing the software?
I'm going to unplug it and leave it overnight. If it still doesn't function tomorrow morning it's going back to woot.
