          maybe relates to https://askubuntu.com/a/1239584?

          Need more information though, did you just upgrade to 20.04? has it worked previously?

          It did work previously.

          In the meantime I found out that the actual issue seemed to be the Java version on the machine. After a downgrade to JRE 8 the service started just fine.
