Failed first-time Pritunl start up

I am trying to set up a Pritunl VPN server on my Debian 11 computer.

I used this tutorial to install pritunl.
After following the tutorial, and installing MongolDb. After I used sudo systemctl status pritunl and recieved:

pritunl.service - Pritunl Daemon
     Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/pritunl.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

I used this tutorial to download python (3.8.2):

Am I missing a python directive or a pritunl directive or is it something else?

Python must be installed from the Debian repository, Pritunl will not run with other versions of Python.
