if you /bin/sh cannot handle "function".
i assume you don't have any modifications in your .profile
or .bashrc that redefine function to something else.
as a test to make sure that your shell is to blame, please
reinstate the original version of the check_failure.sh script

if only the second fails, you should complain to the ubuntu
maintainers about shipping a non-standard bourne shell
(and consider installing a different distribution).
