Dear friends, have you ever met the same problem? How should I deal with this mistake?

You are not alone. I have the same exact same openjdk version and error! It is frustrating!

I am going crazy. The installation of my cloud servers on Ali Cloud and Jingdong Cloud is normal without any problems. Both systems were Ubuntu20.04, I installed a brand new Ubuntu20.04.3 with OpenJDK-11-JRE installed, Jenkins just couldn’t install properly.

Please refer to the instructions in this blog post that describe how to report an issue with the Linux installers. Much more information is needed than you have provided. The necessary information is listed in the blog post along with the location to report the issue.

I just confirmed that the instructions from

work as expected on Ubuntu 20.04 as installed on Google Cloud Platform. The steps I took were:

  1. Install Ubuntu Linux 20.04 on Google Cloud Platform with 8 GB RAM
  2. Run the curl command in the LTS install instructions
  3. Run the echo command in the LTS install instructions
  4. Run the apt-get update command in the LTS install instructions
  5. Install Java 11 with apt install openjdk-11-jre as described in the install instructions
  6. Run the apt-get install jenkins command in the LTS install instructions
  7. Confirm that Jenkins is running with the command systemctl status jenkins

We has similar issue on jenkins start. But after few restarts it works. I think it is depending of hoe many nodes you use. But I am 100% sure
