Failed to start Plex Media Server

Hi there,
from one day to another, plex doesnt run anymore. I cant remember that I tinkered around that could have something changed, but I think I (or something) messed around with the user/rights-management (this still confuses me a bit).
The logs:

nuc@nuc:~$ systemctl status plexmediaserver.service

Do you see something here that could be the cause?
