Motion library problems

Sat Nov 17, 2018 4:50 pm

Untill 2 days ago my pi camera was working fine with Motion. Then the daemon stopped loading and I could not get the server to stream on local internet.
I tried many things, even reinstalled the latest raspbian and afresh install of Motion but the problem persists.
sudo service motion start
produces no errors but
sudo service motion status
motion.service - LSB: Start Motion detection
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/motion; generated; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: active (exited) since Sat 2018-11-17 18:29:20 EET; 14min ago
Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8)
Process: 321 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/motion start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
CGroup: /system.slice/motion.service

Νοέ 17 18:29:19 raspberrypi systemd[1]: Starting LSB: Start Motion detection...
Νοέ 17 18:29:20 raspberrypi motion[321]: Not starting motion daemon, disabled via /etc/default/motion ... (warning).
Νοέ 17 18:29:20 raspberrypi systemd[1]: Started LSB: Start Motion detection.
I then noticed that two motion directories, one in /var/lib and the other in /var/log that should be there were missing. Adding them did not solve the issue.

I believe that there is a new version of motion put out recently. Could this behaviour be a bug?
any help wil be greatly appreciated
