@rajanraju could you please check the localhost information is in your to your ```/etc/hosts``` file? If it is not, just add this line to the top:

127.0.0.1       localhost

Let me know if this helps.

@Zhenya Kovalyov thank you. The /etc/hosts file is empty and locked. Should I write a new file? As an aside, I deleted the proxy, reinstalled, switched off, restarted the machine. When I then ran the proxy, it, fortunately, started up. So now it's all working.
