Debian installation error

I'm trying to install Logstash from online repository. Source added and key added too.
Successfully downloaded and unpacked.
When setup tries to set up logstash there many errors. I already spend 2 days for diggin it - no answers.
Any help any suggestions?

Unable to install system startup script for Logstash.

You have something very unusual going on in your system, as Logstash installs just fine for me on Debian and Ubuntu.

sed: can't read /etc/logstash/logstash.yml: No such file or directory
/etc/logstash/startup.options is not a file path

These lines indicate that the package did not install any files. The files were simply not found. I don't know if it was improperly downloaded or cached, or what, but it's certainly not working.

problem was in write access for some folders running under sudo.
