Cannot start OH2 on UBUNTU 16.04 LTS

I have been following the tutorial

however I cannot get HH2 to start

When I do
sudo systemctl status openhab2.service
I get the following

sudo systemctl status openhab2.service
ā— openhab2.service - openHAB 2 - empowering the smart home
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/openhab2.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

Nov 18 12:48:00 ubuntu2 systemd[1]: openhab2.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

This is usually related to Java not being found.

What is the error message inside:

sudo journalctl -u openhab2 -b

Hi, yes it was java, ive progressed a little since this topic so i will mark it as solved. Thanks for the reply
