   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/vsftpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2016-07-17 18:42:28 EDT; 2s ago
  Process: 2246 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd.conf (code=exited, status=2)
  Process: 2243 ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir -p /var/run/vsftpd/empty (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
 Main PID: 2246 (code=exited, status=2)

systemd[1]: Starting vsftpd FTP server...

systemd[1]: vsftpd.service: Unit entered failed state.
systemd[1]: vsftpd.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

to solve this, edit your /etc/vsftpd.conf file and comment the listen ipv6 line


Later, restart the service with: service vfftpd restart
