No problemo get some sleep! I’m 5 hours behind you.

OK there’s a problem…mode „Managed“ is client not „Master“.

i’m guessing that hostapd is not able to set mode master for some reason.
stop hostapd and run manually…

sudo /etc/init.d/hostapd stop
sudo /usr/sbin/hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf -d | less

this will display one page of the output at a time, you can use the <return> key to advance one
more line at a time, <space> key one page at time. These lines in my output show the interface
being set to mode „AP“ (access point)

Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
nl80211: interface wlan0 in phy phy0
rfkill: initial event: idx=0 type=1 op=0 soft=0 hard=0
nl80211: Using driver-based off-channel TX
nl80211: Register frame command failed (type=208): ret=-114 (Operation already in progress)
nl80211: Register frame match - hexdump(len=2): 04 0a
nl80211: Failed to register Action frame processing - ignore for now
nl80211: Add own interface ifindex 3
nl80211: Set mode ifindex 3 iftype 3 (AP)        <----- HERE
nl80211: Create interface iftype 6 (MONITOR)
Using interface wlan0 with hwaddr 00:0f:60:05:50:82 and ssid 'max2play'

What does your output look like? Look at the output for problems/errors.
BTW: to exit the program type: q followed by ctrl-c
