I have a clean VM of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with all updates done and rebooted.
openjdk-8-jre is installed with apt.
Following the instructions for the tar.gz package (https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/5.6/zip-targz.html) I did the following:
- wget https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-5.6.3.tar.gz
- tar -xf elasticsearch-5.6.3.tar.gz
- cd elasticsearch-5.6.3/
I was going to paste it here but discuss can't handle more than 7000 characters. Here's the result on pastebin.
I'm not sure what else to try here. The error messages don't seem very meaningful. Can anyone translate what Elasticsearch is complaining about?
Thank you in advance for your help.
