A self-hosted user may run into this error upon restarting/updating your instance.
If the error is prepended by
WARN: there must be at least 750MB of free space in the temp directory, then you probably don't have enough free space. Go and run
df -h as the Looker user to see where you may need to free up space.
If the error doesn't have that associated free space warning, here are some things to have checked:
- Do you have the appropriate java version (
- Do you have downloaded both jar files (core and dependencies) following the exact instructions (public-facing in docs)
- Both jars are in the same directory (they should be)
- The shell script is being run from that same directory (it should be)
- Check for any typos
