Reinstalling jre11-openjdk did the trick. Thank you very much!

@Tio, a clean install of the jre11-openjdk package -which already is a dependency of my package- should set everything up for you. It installs the JRE in /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk/. Additionally, you may want to set the value of the environment variable$JAVA_HOME (in your ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc, or simply in your terminal, but this is not permanent) like this:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk/

but this is not strictly necessary, as the jre11-openjdk already adds the binaries to the $PATH.

Ok. I do not know how to do these...but thank you for the answer.

Tio, you either need the $JAVA_HOME variable pointing to your Java 11 installation, or the java executable in your $PATH.

Hi. I already have jre11. I removed jre8 so that perhaps it will use jre11. However now I get this error:

[tio@tio-pc ~]$ gaiasky
/usr/bin/gaiasky: line 80: java: command not found

@Tio you are using the jre 8 to run it, but should be using at least jre 11 (which is a dependency). Check your java installations and make sure you have the right version. You can check the gaiasky script itself to see how the jre is chosen. Maybe you have Java 8 in your $JAVA_HOME or $JRE_HOME vars.

Wanted to say I get this error:

Error: A JNI error has occurred, please check your installation and try again
