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)

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