There is apparently something different about your environment and that in
which Fernando Nino developed that start script.  Apparently the action
command is defined in /etc/init.d/functions in Fernando's environment but
not by /lib/lsb/init-functions in your environment.  I suspect the action
command does nothing more than emit a message to stderr.  You can probably
comment it out.  You might look in your system's /etc/init.d scripts to see
how they emit the OK/FAILED blurb when starting services.
