Ubuntu: Unable to launch Spark


I followed this answer. I am getting this error:

spark-class: line 86: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/bin/java: No such file or directory

And to my surprise, I have:

gsamaras@gsamaras:/usr/lib/jvm$ ls  java-1.7.0-openjdk-amd64  java-7-openjdk-amd64  gsamaras@gsamaras:/usr/lib/jvm$ $JAVA_HOME  bash: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle: No such file or directory  

How to correct it?

More information (from here):

gsamaras@gsamaras:~$ which java  /usr/bin/java  gsamaras@gsamaras:~$ ls -alh /usr/bin/java  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Feb 10 00:54 /usr/bin/java -> /etc/alternatives/java  gsamaras@gsamaras:~$ ls -alh /etc/alternatives/java  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Feb 10 00:54 /etc/alternatives/java -> /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java  

In the ~/.profile I had appended:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64  export PATH=${JAVA_HOME}/bin:${PATH}  export HADOOP_CLASSPATH=${JAVA_HOME}/lib/tools.jar  

from my Hadoop experience. When I sourced that I was able to launch Spark.


gsamaras@gsamaras:~/spark-1.6.0-bin-hadoop2.6/conf$ ls  docker.properties.template  metrics.properties.template   spark-env.sh.template  fairscheduler.xml.template  slaves.template  


I'm unsure whether Spark will work with Java 7, but if not the obvious solution is to install Java 8:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer  

Answering "yes" in the correct spots should get you Java 8 as default, otherwise

sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-8-oracle  

will do the trick.

Update: Having said that, if you want to run with OpenJDK 7, you've got to find out where JAVA_HOME is set wrongly as per

gsamaras@gsamaras:/usr/lib/jvm$ $JAVA_HOME  bash: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle: No such file or directory  

Since you try to correct that in .profile (you did hash -r or re-login?) you might want to check load-spark-env.sh or other scripts that are executed prior to launching Spark proper.
