Failing to install jdbc persistence

I keep getting the following error:

15:23:58.968 [ERROR] [.core.karaf.internal.FeatureInstaller] - Failed installing ‘openhab-persistence-jdbc’

There is no other error message. I searched online (including this forum) for a solution but no luck.

I’m running openhab on my raspberry pi with:
openhab2/stable,now 2.5.4-1
openhab2-addons/stable,now 2.5.4-1
libsqlite0/stable,now 2.8.17-15
libsqlite3-0/stable,now 3.27.2-3
sqlite3/stable,now 3.27.2-3
sqlite/stable,now 2.8.17-15
java version “1.8.0_211”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_211-b12)
Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 25.211-b12, mixed mode)

Not sure if it helps, but it looks like sqlite-jdbc 3.16.1 is installed: /var/lib/openhab2/tmp/kar/openhab-addons-2.5.4/org/xerial/sqlite-jdbc/3.16.1/sqlite-jdbc-3.16.1.jar

Any idea what the issue could be?

Also my jdbc.persist looks like this:

Strategies {
default = everyUpdate

Items {

  • : strategy = everyChange, restoreOnStartup
