We are getting these internal errors when we are trying to access Splunk.

Looks like the user-prefs app is missing. If you go to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps, do you see a directory called user-prefs? If not, that's more than likely the issue. I would download another copy of Splunk Enterprise, whatever version you are running, and copy the user-prefs app from there to your current $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps. Or you could upgrade or reinstall.

I'm wondering if your Splunk Universal Forwarder is binding to the Splunk web port on accident. Is there a reason you have these both installed side by side? If Splunk Enterprise is installed on a machine there is generally no need for a Universal Forwarder.

Try stopping the UF and Splunk Enterprise and just starting Splunk Enterprise and see if this changes anything.
