Hi @nikhils ,

This error happens because you are trying to install the adapter, without installing the Oracle Java 11 JDK (as specified on the documentation as step 2.a.).

Besides, keep in mind that, if you are installing Neo4j on Amazon Linux, you don't need to execute only these commands (and you don't need to install java11, as neo4j installer will do it automatically):

amazon-linux-extras enable java-openjdk11

Install Neo4J

yum install neo4j-4.3.6

Validate the Neo4j installation

rpm -qa | grep neo

Hope this helps

@tfontanella011 thank you for the updates.
I tried the steps you highlighted in the comments, but it is failing at the end with CYpher-shell with the following error,

The rpm output doesn't show the Neo4J version,

Hi @nikhils

Ok, then you need to install Oracle Java 11 JDK, which you can download from the Oracle website or this alernative link .

After doing that, proceed to install the adapter with the following command:

sudo yum install

And then proceed with the other commands already mentioned before.

Hope this helps

did you import the GPG key like the instructions say?
This should be enough to install on amazon linux:

amazon-linux-extras enable java-openjdk11
rpm --import
cat <<EOF >  /etc/yum.repos.d/neo4j.repo
name=Neo4j RPM Repository

yum install neo4j-4.3.6
