How do i get the one click marketplace minecraft server to actually work?

I havent been able to connect i checked the lish output and it shows to have installed everything and created the appropriate folders but the server is not up and running?

Is there a command i can type to make the server run or should i just delete this linode and try a fresh provisioning?

im fairly new to linux but right now its just at a terminal and i can run different commands but i dont know how to go through directories while in lish or modify files and see if everything i need it there or if anything needs to be pointed or even how to start or run the gameserver.

The Minecraft server should start automatically after the installation completes, but if you're not able to connect or there is a red X over your server in Minecraft, something may have gotten in the way of that process. You can try to start the game server manually using the following command:

./mcserver start

If the game server is already running, you can try to restart it instead:

./mcserver restart

If this doesn't work, you may want to try deploying a new Minecraft server from the Marketplace. You can also install Minecraft manually on a Linode using LinuxGSM if you prefer.

i looked again and its the same issue as trying to run a valheim server its missing depencies

the dependencies are lib32gccl, lib32stdc++6, libsdl2-2.0-0:1386, steamcmd

i then enter my sudo password and it sets them up then says
[INFO] Starting mcserver: Welcome to the VGC Minecraft server!!! is already running

but i still cannot connect to it as when i do it says
Internal Exception:
io.netty.handler.codec.DecoderException: The received string length is longer than maximum allowed (23 > 16)

i dont know what im doing wrong?
