Ubuntu – bash: /usr/bin/java: No such file or directory


I have installed jdk1.8.0 manually from the oracle website.

I have followed the steps here on Digital Ocean.

When I executed java -version I got this result:-

bash: /usr/bin/java: No such file or directory

A symbolic link java is present in /usr/bin/
which is linked to another symbolic link java present in /etc/alternatives/and this link points to /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0.

I have set environment variables:- PATH,JAVA_HOME in the files ~/.bashrc and /etc/profile. Still I am getting No such file or directory.

Actually I want to install hadoop and for this the first step is to install java. I am using Ubuntu 14.04

This is because there are some 32-bit libraries missing in your Ubuntu 64-bit. Run:

apt-get install libc6-i386
