Confluence Initial setup Error

Hello - We are evaluating Confluence for a customer and see an error while setting it up on an AWS instance.

Below is the error we see after a trial license is generated and hangs on the next screen spewing this output on the log before failing.

This was due to having a JIRA instance using a embedded database. Switching the confluence to a postgresql database and redoing the installation for confluence fixed the error.
