Running " 14 15" will not produce a
"bootstrap-latest.log" but rather an "update_db-v14_v15.log".

Given what you seem to run and what you expect to find:

What is the exact shell this is running under ?

Does that shell support

        set -e
        set -o pipefail

?  The script forces /bin/bash but maybe the MacOSX bash is
either rather old or else /bin/bash is linked to something
else ?
