When you run the Hadoop CLI command it spawns a java process which in turn
tries to connect to the namenode service. In this case, your client is
trying to reach the namenode at "localhost" on TCP port 9000. That
connection is failing. The likely reason is that your namenode service is
not running right now. You can check this by doing a "netstat -an | grep
9000" to see if theres anything listening, which is unlikely. If you don't
see any process bound to port 9000 then either start the namenode service,
or if you've already tried that, then check the namenode log to see why it
isn't running. The location of the log files can vary but the file you'd be
interested in will have a name format like hadoop*namenode*.log
