I think you've installed a version of Java that does not work on Raspberry Pi, due to different software architecture. I've had similar messages trying to whack standard ELF binaries onto machines built on ARM chips - you'll need to use the ARM based Java distribution of Java,
I'd also like to gently point out that 512Mb RAM probably isn't going to be enough for Jira - unless you're running a tiny handful of users, only a few issues, you'll quickly find you need at least 512Mb in the heap for Jira, which you can't do on a Pi because you need to leave memory for the OS as well...
Thanks Nic, I figured it had to do with the path of where Java is run from. I think the Java that comes with Jira .bin is the issue.
I had only planned to use Jira for 4 users. But I didnt really take into the system requirements before I tried to install it to my Pi. Ill look into other architectures to put my install on. Thanks for your help again.
For the Java issue, it is most likely due to it being an ARM architecture and not an x86 or x64 (I had similar issues with other installs). For the I/O issue, yes you will get "slower" performance on a pi (a pi is a pi and not a server with SAS storage). If you have the option use a class 10 micro SD card. Its not going to make it blazing fast, but it will help out a bit with your I/O. I would love to know if you get Jira to work on pi in the end.
However, it is possible to get Jira installed on an RPi 3B+ using the tar.gz download of Jira.
RAM is still the main limiting factor. But the 3B and the 3B+ have 1GB or RAM, which still isn't enough, unless you reconfigure the default swap space.
I found jdavidpeter's guide a big help.
Long term, this much swap is probably not good for your SDcard, but it does allow you to get a small Jira instance up and running.
