Bin/elasticsearch-certutil ca command is not working

I install elasticsearch 7.3 using this command

shasum -a 512 -c elasticsearch-7.3.2-amd64.deb.sha512 
sudo dpkg -i elasticsearch-7.3.2-amd64.deb

my server is ubuntu 18.04

I am trying to setup 3 nodes elasticsearch with some security so I am trying to setup
Encrypting communications in Elasticsearch

although when I follow the link I am getting error to the very first command

bin/elasticsearch-certutil ca

-bash: bin/elasticsearch-certutil: No such file or directory

also I am in my root directory.


The installation guide gives you information on how to install and at the end where are located the binaries. See

Yes I followed that link only in order to install elasticsearch, but I didn't go through these commands:

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elastic-7.x.list

now what should I do ? should I reinstall the whole elasticsearch again by uninstalling them ?
