Not really, it just says a channel crashed without providing a reason.
The reason might appear earlier in the log.

Connected consumers won't prevent the broker from shutting down, and the
presence of consumers is unlikely to affect the return code in the way
you describe.

As Michael said, it would help to know how the broker was installed.
Also, do you get the same return code if you stop the broker manually?
