I needed to jump some hoops in order to install a specific version of tomcat, and thereby executed several guides' commands. Now, every time I use any apt-get or dpkg command, tomcat starts setting up and fails the whole install process.
$ sudo dpkg --configure -a Setting up tomcat8 (8.0.32-1ubuntu1.4) ... Job for tomcat8.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status tomcat8.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. invoke-rc.d: initscript tomcat8, action "start" failed. ● tomcat8.service - LSB: Start Tomcat. <snip> Errors were encountered while processing: tomcat8 $ sudo apt-get -f install Reading package lists...

Anything that would normally fix my packages keeps triggering this. Does anyone know where this is caused and how to fix it?
Thank you in advance,
