I recently starting getting errors starting the Tor Browser on my Debian machine. These errors are fairly new occurring first in the last couple months. I have tried install older versions of the Tor Browser and nothing is working now (though these older versions did work in the past).
When I start I get this error
Tor unexpectedly exited. This might be due to a bug in Tor itself, another program on your system, or faulty hardware. Until you restart Tor, the Tor Browser will not able to reach any websites. If the problem persists, please send a copy of your Tor Log to the support team.
When I attempt to open in the terminal, I get the following output
Launching Tor Browser for Linux in /home/user/tor-browser_en-US/Browser...

The error seems to occur at the cannot bind to requested address line, but I cannot make heads or tails of it.
Any help or direction resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
