So... how did you set the switch? Perhaps providing the contents of
your script would help?

You can always start Tomcat like this:

$ bin/ run

... and stdout will not be redirected: you'll get any error messages
right on the console. If that works without any errors, it's time to
start looking at how Ubuntu actually launches your Tomcat using its
service scripts. Debian-derived systems usually have additional
configuration files found under /etc/default/ -- you might start
looking there.
