> FATAL: Reading packet from pcap failed, interface is no longer up. Usually this happens when a DHCP client times out and turns off the interface.

There you go. Something is closing the interface. figure out what it is and turn it off. Theres no way to know what is reconfiguring your interface programattically, so you'll have to look @ your setup and see if you're running dhcpcd, networkmanager, or anything else like that which automanages your interface.
