Security autoconfiguration information

I have just installed the newest version of Elasticsearch using the official guide but did not come across 'Security autoconfiguration information' screen. Now when I try to start Elasticsearch using the following command:

curl --cacert /etc/elasticsearch/certs/http_ca.crt -u elastic https://localhost:9200

It asks for password for 'elastic' user which I do not have.

It's printed on the screen when you install. Which guide did you follow? Could you please share the link?

I followed this guide.

Nothing appeared on the screen while installing.

This is the command of installation and its output:

$ sudo apt-get install elasticsearch

Running kernel seems to be up-to-date.

No services need to be restarted.

No containers need to be restarted.

No user sessions are running outdated binaries.

No VM guests are running outdated hypervisor (qemu) binaries on this host.

And before this, following commands were entered:

1  sudo apt update && sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
2  wget -qO - | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/elasticsearch-keyring.gpg
3  sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
4  echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/elasticsearch-keyring.gpg] stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/elastic-8.x.list
5  sudo apt-get update

@dadoonet Any thoughts on it?

I just did it on 8.9.0 recently here: Can't start elastic elasticsearch-8.9.0 - #10 by choilee

And the message was printed... So I don't know exactly what happened. What is your OS?

But why did you do this:

sudo apt update && sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
