@Jasper  I don't  see any  error here  and  it  looks  like you are doing a  fresh  installation not  upgrade. please provide  the exact problem  you are facing.

This is the normal upgrade mode. I don't chose a thing, it just crashes.

@Jasper  Could you  please provide more log information in  <jira-home-dir>\log\atlassian-log

@Moses Thomas this is the output after trying to install after a reboot:

[root@atlassian atlassian]# ./atlassian-jira-software-8.1.0-x64.bin
Unpacking JRE ...

And this is output of the log of yesterday:

@Jasper   I suspect permission  issue. 

try the following,  make sure you are in  the directory where you have the binary file

 chmod a+x  atlassian-jira-software-8.1.0-x64.bin
