It sounds like that you already have a process running on that port. It is possible that your Minecraft service is already running, you can check that with the following command:

netstat -plant | grep 25577

If this is the case, you would need to first stop the old process, before you would be able to start the new instance.

Hope that this helps! Best, Bobby
