Oracle 21c dbca LISTENER specification fails with port 1521 busy

I am trying to create a new 21c (21.3) database on Linux 8.4

where I get to specifying the LISTENER I get a message that port 1521 is busy. Why would this happen and how do I get past this step?

I only have WiFi connectivity to the Linux box
