The two most simple possibilities: Is "-user SYSBDA" a typo just in this post or did you enter it like that? It's SYSDBA. And in Firebird 1.5 and later the SYSDBA password on Linux shouldn't be "masterkey" but a random password stored in the text file SYSDBA.password. Should be in the Firebird installation directory, but I don't know where that's located in recent Ubuntu versions. Same directory as firebird.conf at all events.
