Workaround for /usr/lib/jvm/java-13-openjdk-amd64 Permission denied


This kind of problem happens when your JAVA_HOME is misconfigured in your system. In our case, we just have to replace the line


JAVA_HOME= "/usr/lib/jvm/java-13-openjdk-amd64"


by this one




If you still don't see the difference, no worries. The difference is that:


  • The space between '=' and 'usr/lib … ' should be avoided.


  • There is no claw in the second line.


In short, these details are important to take into account if you directly modify the file containing JAVA_HOME. My preferred way to do this is to run setup in the terminal.

Specifically, you need to run the following command:


export JAVA_HOME=usr/lib/jvm/java-13-openjdk-amd64


Now that it's done, you can check if your order is taken into account by running:


echo $ JAVA_HOME


You will need to find the following line in response




The error should disappear if your JAVA_HOME is well configured.
