[SOLVED] Documentation mistake? sudo dpkg -i zulu8.38.0.13-ca-jdk8.0.212-linux_amd64.deb

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Raspberry Pi 4 / 4 GB RAM
    • OS: Raspbian Buster Lite (26.09.2019)
    • Java Runtime Environment:

root@raspberrypi:/opt/jdk# java -version
openjdk version “1.8.0_212”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu8.38.0.163-CA-linux_aarch32hf) (build 1.8.0_212-b163)
OpenJDK Client VM (Zulu8.38.0.163-CA-linux_aarch32hf) (build 25.212-b163, mixed mode, Evaluation)

I’m hanging on this step of installation guide:


sudo dpkg -i zulu8.38.0.13-ca-jdk8.0.212-linux_amd64.deb

root@raspberrypi:/opt/jdk# sudo dpkg -i zulu8.38.0.13-ca-jdk8.0.212-linux_amd64.deb
dpkg: Fehler: Auf das Archiv »zulu8.38.0.13-ca-jdk8.0.212-linux_amd64.deb« kann nicht zugegriffen werden: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

Another mistake I found in the docs:

sudo rm ulu8.38.0.163-ca-jdk1.8.0_212-linux_aarch32hf.tar.gz

Right version:

sudo rm zulu8.38.0.163-ca-jdk1.8.0_212-linux_aarch32hf.tar.gz

Can you help me with this step with dpkg?


Why use a third party guide instead of official documentation? Using openHABian is easiest or you can use the official installation guide.

For Java they direct you to Azul’s site.

There is no mistake in the official documentation. If you want to correct that documentation I guess you could try filing an Issue on their GitHub page.

That particular error is because the file does not exist in the directory you are in.
But as @Bruce_Osborne already responded, that’s not the official docs. So we can’t comment or correct them - you would need to contact the authors.

Either way, a better recommendation is to get openHABian:

That now IS a link to the official docs :slight_smile:

Thank you I try it again with openHABian :slight_smile:!

Hmmmm :frowning: :

openHABian v1.5 based on Debian Buster supports RPi4

Attention! The openHABian setup process seems to have failed on your system.
Sorry, this shouldn’t happen! Please restart the installation process. Chances
are high setup will succeed on the second try.

What I do is I follow the Linus openHABian instructions on Raspbian Lite.
That works well on a Pi too.

Errr, you installed in July, stopped and continued today ?
openHABian code from July has issues that have been fixed meanwhile.
Please install from scratch. As you have a RPi, better use the image than to install Raspbian yourself.

I use the lastest release form https://github.com/openhab/openhabian/releases “openhabian-pi-raspbian-201908050414-gitca0976f-crc6a66b5a1.img.xz”. Wasn’t this the right way?

Now it seems working. I do the following:

sudo rm -R /opt/openhabian
sudo reboot
