Can anybody understand from the above log what exactly is causing this error?

this guy met the same issue, check this link out.

I copyed the answer written by Dimitar Dimitrov as follows

This means that your service had already stopped – either killed from
the OS, or stopped from your application.

Does this problem happen every time you debug your project?

Override your service’s onDestroy() method and watch what event flow
leads to it. If you catch DeadObjectException without going through
this method, your service should have been killed by the OS.
