That version is over three years old and does not include copyXML in a <Context> element.
 Not keeping up with current releases opens your website up to attacks fixed in later versions.

As you should.

You can set copyXML in the <Host> element if you insist on running old software.

Which may or may not be correct, since third-party distributions often cherry-pick changes
to include, along with generally corrupting the standard Tomcat file layout.

I strongly recommend that you deinstall the Debian package and use a current, real Tomcat
from tomcat.apache.org.
