If msfconsole is run with sudo (same as from the menu) a DB error shows up:
[-] Failed to connect to the database: could not connect to server: Connection refused
Is the server running on host "localhost" (127.0.0.1) and accepting
TCP/IP connections on port 7337?
John Bize provided troubleshooting details for this issue on the SamuraiWTF mailing list:
exec /usr/share/metasploit/ctlscript.sh "$@" postgresql
Change the script permissions:
$ sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/metasploit-postgresql
$ sudo update-rc.d metasploit-postgresql defaults
Restart the system.
This will be fixed in 2.1.
