Elasticsearch install error: dpkg: error processing package elasticsearch (--install)

After removing the existing elasticsearch version 6. I got an error in installing elasticsearch version 7.

Here is the error message:
#dpkg -i elasticsearch-7.1.1-amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 113568 files and directories currently installed.)

can anyone help me on this issue.

Install java 1.8.0 instead of using java 8. The elastic matrix compatibility is shown here.

Thank you @TsuWeiQuan
