The errors listed during shutdown:

│FATAL: Suid-root control binary failed: No such file or directory │
│FATAL: Root IPC control binary has died, shutting down

mean you did not properly install it. Read the README or the Documentation link on the website for how to install it to run as non-root, or you must run it as root w/out the benefits of privilege dropping (this is less secure).
