Have you tried decompressing the generated deb package to see what it looks like? I have never made a deb package myself, despite using Debian for many years, but I understand it can be somewhat complicated.

I found these links that might indicate where the generated package falters.

I also saw that there is a Debian package called java-package with the description:

Utility for creating Java Debian packages

This package provides the capability to build a Debian package from
a Java binary distribution by running make-jpkg <java binary archive file>.
(with archive files downloaded from providers listed below)

Supported java binary distributions currently include:
* Oracle (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads) :
- The Java Development Kit (JDK), version 6, 7 and 8
- The Java Runtime Environment (JRE), version 6, 7 and 8
- The Java API Javadoc, version 6, 7 and 8
Choose tar.gz archives or self-extracting archives (_not_ RPM).

Please note that Debian recommends the use of openjdk-[78]-jdk and/or
openjdk-[78]-jre, which are installed by default-jdk or default-jre for
most architectures.

java-package will create non-free packages.

Installable with
sudo apt install java-package
