I'm trying to install Hadoop 2.7.3. on Elementary OS (which ~ Ubuntu, I believe) following the instructions in the BUILDING.txt that came with the Hadoop files.

The file indicates that I need to install Oracle JDK 1.7 by going through the following steps:

  $ sudo apt-get purge openjdk*

  $ sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

  $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

  $ sudo apt-get update

  $ sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

All works well until the last step, where it exits with an error message which I'm not sure what to make of (sorry if paste is too long; I'd be happy to edit it but Idk what's relevant):

download failed

Oracle JDK 7 is NOT installed.

dpkg: error processing package oracle-java7-installer (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of oracle-jdk7-installer: oracle-jdk7-installer depends on oracle-java7-installer; however: Package oracle-java7-installer is not configured yet.

I figured

  • the 404 is the main issue - it's looking for files but can't find them

So my question is

  • Is that even true? What is the roadblock here?

  • How can I fix it, or do I have to take another path?

(I am following White's Hadoop - The Definitive Guide for the overall approach. )

    It looks like Oracle moved the location of the JDK: community.oracle.com/thread/4048619 – zr870 Jun 2 '17 at 14:38
  • What would be the solution to this? – nhaarman Jun 7 '17 at 10:02
  • @nhaarman there are other methods described on askubuntu. I just ended up downloading the installer from the Oracle Archive for which you need to set up a free account first. Then installed by hand. – patrick Jun 8 '17 at 15:47
  • @patrick, you could self-answer with the above information. – Jeff Schaller Oct 29 '17 at 11:30

As suggested by @Jeff Schaller, moving my comment into the answer: There are other methods described on askubuntu. I just ended up downloading the installer from the Oracle Archive for which you need to set up a free account first. Then installed by hand.
