I just tried that, when I ssh with the dietpi user it says I don't have access to do that:
dietpi@DietPi:~$ sudo systemctl stop jackett.service
dietpi@DietPi:~$ sudo -u jackett /bin/dash -c '/opt/jackett/jackett --DataFolder=/opt/jackett/Jackett --NoRestart; while pgrep -u jackett JackettUpdater > /dev/null; do sleep 1; done'
[sudo] password for dietpi:
Sorry, user dietpi is not allowed to execute '/bin/dash -c /opt/jackett/jackett --DataFolder=/opt/jackett/Jackett --NoRestart; while pgrep -u jackett JackettUpdater > /dev/null; do sleep 1; done' as jackett on DietPi.
dietpi@DietPi:~$
If I then open the services jackett now says inactive.

If I reboot then ssh with root I can see the service is back to activating when I run the command there's no feedback:
root@DietPi:~# sudo systemctl stop jackett.service
root@DietPi:~# sudo -u jackett /bin/dash -c '/opt/jackett/jackett --DataFolder=/opt/jackett/Jackett --NoRestart; while pgrep -u jackett JackettUpdater > /dev/null; do sleep 1; done'
root@DietPi:~#
but again the service changed to inactive.

Usually this should start the server. Maybe there is more brocken on Jackett. Pobably you would need to remove Jackett and reinstall this software.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
