My answer:


Your system has configured systemctl to send output through the less pager. You can just press q to exit and return to your terminal session.

You can prevent this behavior by using the --no-pager command line option, or permanently by setting the SYSTEMD_PAGER environment variable to the empty string. For example, you might place this in your .bashrc file:

export SYSTEMD_PAGER=''

You are not having a problem with redis and can ignore the message about a missing PID file.
