Fail2ban not starting

Not in this case, fail2ban started all it’s jails.

/var/log/messages will also tell you if there is a missing log file, then just touch it and fail2ban will start

Again, everything started

You will only see it cleanly stopped in the fail2ban log file, and I doubt whether syslog (messages) would identify any malfeasance, so something else did that.
