This usually happens if your operating system is not supported by 
DMX - The Context Machine, or this script's OS detection failed.

You can override the OS detection by setting os= and dist= prior to running this script.
You can find a list of supported OSes and distributions on our website:

For example, to force Ubuntu Trusty: os=ubuntu dist=trusty ./

If you are running a supported OS, please email and report this.

Thank you Ralf for getting back to us and reporting this issue. I am glad to read you found a workaround. Doing a quick search I also found this thread on the topic: openjdk-8 for Debian 10 - Super User. To my understanding the suggested solution should work for openjdk-8-jre-headless as well. Alternatively you could have a go at our DMX docker image.
