I keep getting this error when I run sudo systemctl start bitcoind.service Job for bitcoind.service failed because the control process exited with error code.

See "systemctl status bitcoind.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. When I input sudo journalctl -xe I get this.

When I input systemctl status bitcoind.service I get this:

Seems that you have an error in bitcoind starting options, you have -daemonwait instead of -daemon, you can check with systemctl cat bitcoind.service

The file to edit should be /etc/systemd/system/bitcoind.service
