Elasticsearch 6.0: how to install license plugin

See my question here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47539110/elasticsearch-6-0-how-to-install-license-plugin

I can't seem to install the license plugin from the guide. It is not clear from the documentation what ES_HOME is.

Say you download the tar file containing elasticsearch in a directory called /usr/share/src/. You unzip it and the directory structure becomes /usr/share/src/elasticsearch-6.0.0. That would be your ES_HOME.

So if you were to set your ES_HOME variable in your environment, it would be

export ES_HOME=/usr/share/src/elasticsearch-6.0.0

If you have X-Pack installed it includes the license functionality, there is no separate plugin these days.

Yup, I missed the note at the top of the page. Thanks!
