I don't agree with some of the Democrats' arguments that Mueller failed to conclude that the President obstructed justice because he knew that he couldn't indict him. That's pretty far out. I see no reason why Mueller couldn't have arrived at such a conclusion even though he couldn't have filed an indictment.
What I do believe is that Mueller concluded that although there was some evidence which might point towards possible obstruction of justice by the President, he felt that the Congress, which has the final say in such matters (via impeachment) should make the final determination. (See below link).
Then , there is the other view that although the President attempted to obstruct justice, he didn't actually do so---this, because his aides refused to carry out his obstruction orders.
(See below: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/mueller-trump-failed-obstruct-because-his-aides-refused-carry-out-n996071).
To me, this is sort of like saying that attempted murder is not a crime because a murder was not committed.
