It tries to open a browser by using the "Hypertext Viewer" configured
in CCP4i:

  System Administration -> Configure Interface

Please check what this is set to and if that command does work/exist
on your system.

There could be other issues, especially if you run CCP4i remotely via
a ssh session or such.
