Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu
I tried to install as well but it worked fine for me.
We need to find what is special for your case.

Unfortunately nothing points to the actual issue.
I'd recommend to start with the statement already recommended by the error
$ journalctl -xe
On upgrading a service this service has to be restarted to pick up the fixes.
Rather rarely a real issue occurs that the newer version does e.g. fail with
the formerly working configuration.
But most of the time what happens is, that a service was installed, but stays
unconfigured or experimented with but left in a broken state.
Now on any update of the related packages that service has to be restarted, but
since its config is incomplete/faulty it fails to restart.
Therefore the update of that package has to consider itself incomplete.
Depending on your particular case there are two solutions:
- either remove the offending package if you don't want to continue using it.
- Or if you do want to keep it please fix the configuration so that re-starting
the service will work.
There isn't really enough information here for a developer to confirm this
issue is a bug, or to begin working on it.
Further since it seems likely to me that this is a local configuration problem,
rather than a bug in Ubuntu, I'm marking this bug as Incomplete.
If indeed this is a local configuration problem, you can find pointers
to get help for this sort of problem here:
Or if you believe that this is really a bug, then you may find it
helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively"
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful
if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem,
explain why you believe this is a bug in Ubuntu rather than a problem
specific to your system, and then change the bug status back to New.
** Changed in: tomcat8 (Ubuntu)
