Error: You must build the project with Gradle or download a pre-built package

Hi!

I have installed ES in a Debian 8 using dpkg -i and after install when I try to run ES appears this message.

What exactly did you download?


#3

Hi!

DEB package


(David Pilato) #4

From which URL?


#5

https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-5.6.2.deb


#6

I have tried other ways, using apt-get or the tar package, but appears the same error.

I don´t know if this is relevant, but in this computer I had other version of ES, 2.x. That I uninstalled.

„uninstalled“ is very unspecific. You probably need to purge otherwise you might be left in a weird state with old configs.


#8

I have checked all files and the uninstall process is ok

Can you reproduce it on a fresh new VM?
