Side note: you shouldn't use jail.conf, use your own jail.local
(jail.conf gets overwritten on version update).

There's no problem in the above configuration, it should have started.

Have you checked /etc/fail2ban/jail.d, there may be something in there.
I have a defaults-debian.conf (which disables sshd).

OK just saw your last message, at least it is working now, no idea where
the jail was disabled.
