This seems to me like an issue with systemd. Each service is allowed to
write only to specified directories.

For example using Jetty in Debian 10 (Buster), I've had to edit jetty9

# systemctl edit jetty9

And add the following:


Then reload daemon and restart Jetty:

# systemctl daemon-reload
# systemctl restart jetty9

After this configuration change, Jetty is allowed to write to the
following paths:

# systemctl show jetty9 | grep ReadWritePaths
ReadWritePaths=/var/lib/jetty9 /opt/shibboleth-idp/logs

So I guess, it could help you to change tomcat service accordingly.
