So user let me know a service was down and unavailable, I investigated and sure as can be it wasn't running.
Poke scripts, starts manually, test reboot box, doesn't start. Spend ages digging around trying to work out why when its not forthcoming with diagnostics.

My advice: dump WhatsApp today and start using Wire (https://wire.com/en/products/personal-secure-messenger/). Tell your friends and family to do the same.
