It took me 4 hours to reply because of this restriction
I am not married to Ubuntu Mate, that’s just what ended up being the most stable version I have tried so far. I’ve tried Ubuntu Core 16, Ubuntu Classic Server 16.04 (which has major internal problems) and finally Ubuntu MATE 16.04.2 from this offering.
Where did you get your distro of Debian?
I won’t grab Docker
I used the instructions from the old PB forum for Linux/Ubuntu setup guide which has been moved here, but that post has been modified to where I don’t see the same instruction command anymore (I’ve noticed since I’ve used that guide for the past 3 weeks trying to get this to work ). So it was a Terminal command that retrieved and unzipped the OpenJDK. I did follow your instructions and updated Ubuntu and installed Java using
apt-get but I don’t think it helped my connectivity issue. You said you have success with Debian running PhantomBot, may I please get a link for that and I’ll just go ahead and start over?
Thanks again for all your help!
