I followed this tutorial https://howtoprogram.xyz/2017/08/09/how-to-install-activemq-on-ubuntu-16-04-lts-xenial-xerus/ to install ActiveMQ manually and everything worked fine and i was even able to access the webhost on http://127.0.0.1:8161. But I tried the
sudo apt-get install automatic option out of curiosity and though it was also successful, I cannot access the web console for both installations now though I am able to start them. Below are snippets of the output:
● activemq.service - LSB: ActiveMQ instance Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/activemq; generated) Active: active (running) since Thu 2019-03-28 22:52:17 GMT; 3s ago Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8) Process: 14696 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/activemq stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCE Process: 15233 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/activemq start (code=exited, status=0/SUC Tasks: 31 (limit: 4915) CGroup: /system.slice/activemq.service └─15265 /usr/lib/jvm/default-java//bin/java -Xms512M -Xmx512M -Dorg.a Mar 28 22:52:11 sys-abj systemd: Starting LSB: ActiveMQ instance...

and a netstat to the transportConnector tells it's listening by yielding this result:
tcp6 0 0 127.0.0.1:61616 :::* LISTEN 15265/java
However, any time I point to 127.0.0.1:8161, I get no feed back.
I stumbled upon this https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14020283/how-to-install-or-config-activemq-admin-cosolejetty-use-apt-get-command link but I still can't wrap my head around how to configure the web console.
Any help would be much appreciated
