Could not find logstash.yml file despite the file being located in the default directory

Good Evening,

Here is the layout of my directory:
Within /etc/logstash/ is the following files and directories:

conf.d    log4j2.properties   logstash.yml   startup.options    jvm.options    logstash-sample.conf
piplelines.yml

I have tried to /usr/share/logstash/bin/logstash --path.config etc/logstash but also to no avail
and /usr/share/logstash/bin/logstash -f --path.config etc/logstash
and /usr/share/logstash/bin/logstash -f, --path.config etc/logstash

These have not worked. Any help would be appreciated

Pretty sure you need /etc/logstash, and you're missing the first /.
