Installation problem, missing .jar files from archive



Hi there,

I tried to upgrade my installation of Nexus OSS from 3.10 to 3.13, but I faced ans issue. The jar what I downloaded from OSS - Thank You contains fault jar files at /org/eclipse/jetty/jetty-client, the files missing the .jar extension. I get the following error at kara.log:

Can you help me to solve this issue?

Best regards,

  1. How did you unpack the archive (what specific command/tool did you use)?
  2. Did you make any changes to it prior to starting it up?
  3. Does the user you are using to start it have read/write access to the installation?
