I ran into this problem few days back, I was not able to run the builds because the Build Controller was showing Status as Unavailable.

It was showing the below exception:

There was no endpoint listening at http://fullmachinename:9191/Build/v3.0/Services/Controller/2 that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.

After trying out few things, I looked at below Build Service Properties.

 

Then, I did below modifications to the Build Services Properties:

1)      Changed the Local Build Service Endpoint(incoming) from

http://machinename.domain.com:9191 to http://machinename:9191

2)      Changed the Connect to Team Project Collection (outgoing) from localhost to machine name. http://localhost:8080/tfs/defaultCollection to http://machinename:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection

 

After that Started the Build Services and it fixed the issue, the Build Controller was showing Available Status and was able to run the builds.

I had similar error. Using an IP address in the local build service endpoint definition fixed it (the TFS server and the Build server are different computers)

I had same error but different issue had caused it. Build Controller was a virtual machine and after moving it to a different host server, the controller and agent wouldn't come backup. IP had changed when the machine started on the new host, so an IPConfig /flushdns resloved the problem for me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
An IT admin was messing around with our DNS to fix some issue and suddenly our automated builds stopped working.
Your suggestion sorted out the issue :) :)
