mysql 8.0 Error log is empty

I have a fairly fresh installation of mysql 8.0.25 on Ubuntu 20-04, its the default install on an Amazon lightsail instance.

The error log file is always empty, and wont record any events and its driving me nuts, I need to see login failures, and am testing by fudging a good username or password and getting a connection failure, but nothing ever gets recorded in this log file. I have read the fine manual pages but its way too complicated and verbose for me to get my head around a simple process to save errors to the log file. Nevertheless I am fairly certain my configuration is correct. I have searched a lot and cant find anything to assist.

my log-error configuration is

log_error /var/log/mysql/error.log
log_error_services log_filter_internal; log_sink_internal
log_error_verbosity 3

/var/log/mysql/error.log file permission is 640 and every day it gets rotated to another empty file and after 2 days its deleted.

any suggestions truly appreciated.
