I think that ssl mode is enabled by default in Ubuntu package and
there are snakeoil certs provided in data directory

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root     root       36 2011-04-25 16:34 server.crt ->
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root     root       38 2011-04-25 16:34 server.key ->

Since there is no root.crt in data directory postmaster fails to
start. I think that PostgreSQL can't "see" certs in config directory

In Ubuntu package there is config directory and data directory, so I
think that OP should put certs to data dir, not config dir:
