Issues after removing and reinstalling's Avatar

I installed Arachni by using the terminal:
sudo apt-get install arachni It seemed to be an old version with some bugs in it so I downloaded the new version manually and put it over the existing one.
That didn't work out well... Arachni didn't strat anymore. So I decided to remove arachni in terminal with
sudo apt-get uninstall arachni and re-installed it by using the terminal.
Now I 'm getting an error:

/usr/share/arachni/system/gems/gems/eventmachine-1.0.3/lib/eventmachine.rb:526:in start_tcp_server': no acceptor (port is in use or requires root privileges) (RuntimeError)

    I'm afraid I can't help you with this, the only official packages can be found at:

    I've no idea what the deal is with the one you installed or what it's uninstall procedure is, I think you should talk with its maintainer.

    Sorry I couldn't be of much help.
