Unable to create symbolic link during installation

I am trying to set up a virtual machine on Microsoft Azure running ubuntu server 18.04. When I run the Lucee command-line install (version 5.3.2.077) the progress bar gets to 100%, then sits there for about 5 seconds and then returns the following errors:

Unable to create symbolic link /opt/lucee/jre/legal/java.xml/ADDITIONAL_LICENSE_INFO -> …/java.base/ADDITIONAL_LICENSE_INFO

Unable to create symbolic link /opt/lucee/jre/legal/java.xml/ASSEMBLY_EXCEPTION -> …/java.base/ASSEMBLY_EXCEPTION

Unable to create symbolic link /opt/lucee/jre/legal/java.xml/LICENSE -> …/java.base/LICENSE

Any thoughts on how to rectify this issue would be greatly appreciated.

what user are you running as?

As per the documentation, I am using the below commands to launch the installer:

chmod 744 lucee-5.3.2.077-pl0-linux-x64-installer.run
sudo ./lucee-5.3.2.077-pl0-linux-x64-installer.run

So, I believe it is running the install as root

Further, during the installation process, I selected that Lucee should run as “root”
