when attempting to restart service via systemctl restart pyload getting the same error as op
i have also run setup-pyload but same issue will attempt a reinstall and reboot like OP did and post findings
EDIT: reinstalled ran setup-pyload restarted service and now its working… seems to not work on first install for some strange reason
