  1. How did you install OS?
    • from the Iso

4. How did you get this error? Are there any steps to procedure it?

This error appeared out of nowhere. One day I just couldn’t launch burpsuite (app installed alrdy in the OS with the security version of the os) from the graphic interface, I would launch it and it just wouldn’t open. so I started opening it by issuing “burpsuite” from the terminal. Then that started giving this error below: I even downloaded the .jar but same exact output error.

Googling the error I truly couldn’t solve this problem. I recall you the OS is fresh, I didn’t do any modifications to it besides upgrading it with the usual ‘apt upgrade’.

Fixed it with:

`sudo apt-get install openjdk-14-jre`

Then just re-run burpsuite, and it will launch.
