Did you install a broker? Most people are using the Mosquitto broker which is performant and easy to use. That is always going to be better than trying to use node-red-contrib-mqtt-broker.

node-red-contrib-mqtt-broker is deprecated.

There is an MQTT broker available for Node-red: Aedes.

It is simple to setup and use: Install via Manage Palette, put an Aedes node into one flow.
I suppose you have the guarantee that if Node-red is running, so is your broker.

However, it's much better to install Mosquitto somewhere on your network, especially since you seem to have a Linux machine.
Not as simple to install but very reliable once you have done so.
