      Description

      I'm currently trying to setup a nexus oss release 3 on my ubuntu server 16.04 with no success.

      I just tried following the official documentations. As requirements it says I only need Java Oracle 8 which I successfully downloaded and installed:

       

      nexus@ip-172-31-41-41:/opt/nexus/bin$ javac -version
      javac 1.8.0_161 
      
      nexus@ip-172-31-41-41:/opt/nexus/bin$ java -version
      java version "1.8.0_161"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_161-b12)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.161-b12, mixed mode)

      Downloaded and the latest release:

      nexus@ip-172-31-41-41:/home/ubuntu$ ls -lrt
      total 110660
      -rw-rw-r-- 1 ubuntu ubuntu 113305813 Apr 5 14:50 latest-unix.tar.gz
      drwxrwxr-x 9 ubuntu ubuntu 4096 Apr 17 14:58 nexus-3.10.0-04
      drwxrwxr-x 3 ubuntu ubuntu 4096 Apr 17 14:58 sonatype-work

      I copied both folders to /opt/:

      nexus@ip-172-31-41-41:/opt$ ls -lrt
      total 8
      drwxr-xr-x 8 nexus nexus 4096 Apr 17 15:01 nexus
      drwxr-xr-x 3 nexus nexus 4096 Apr 17 15:01 sonatype-work

      Created a "nexus" user and modified owner to both folders as you can see in the latest output.

      Also edited the nexus/bin/nexus with the following:

      INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle
      run_as_user='nexus'

      If I start nexus:

      nexus@ip-172-31-41-41:/opt/nexus/bin$ ./nexus start
      Starting nexus
      
      nexus@ip-172-31-41-41:/opt/nexus/bin$ ./nexus status
      Error: Could not find or load main class com.install4j.runtime.launcher.UnixLauncher

      I don't know what else should I do.

      Any help would be appreciate.
