maybe the installation of your 'self built' utils is a
little incomplete ... I'd try with the source tar, and
after a proper configuration (to get your pathes right)
do the 'make install' and 'make install-distribution'

this means that the 'configured' IP(s) already exists,
maybe with a different netmask/prefix, check with
'ip addr ls' and remove the 'offending' IP(s)

this very much looks like the save_ctxinfo is failing
possible reasons could be:
- /lib/util-vserver/save_ctxinfo (or wherever it is
on your distro) is not executable or missing
- /etc/vservers/.defaults/run.rev is not pointing
to a valid directory to store the info
- the directory /var/run/vservers.rev is not writeable
or does not exist

yes, well, to explain all kinds of errors in a tool
of this complexity is almost impossible ...
