Im my case I: Reset the java Version with: archlinux-java command. Selected: java-11-openjdk and re-installed. It fixed the problem.

I guess you were using an AUR-helper instead of makepkg, didn't you? When I used such a tool in the past, things did went wrong. Just pulling changes from the Git repository and running makepkg manually solved many problems for me. In this case, you have to install both packages that are created by makepkg and my guess is not installing both caused your issue.

K, so somehow the package that this AUR creates, intellij-idea-ultimate-edition-jre, wasn't actually installed when I updated. I got it installed by doing a manual install from the PKGBUILD file with makepkg -si etc. Once the ./jre folder was in /opt/intellij-idea-ultimate-edition from that package, the ./ script was able to detect it first rather than my system Java (1.8) and it started up correctly and created the right .config/.. folder etc.

Not sure why it didn't build the intellij-idea-ultimate-edition-jre package though, but that was the reason. I learned a TON about how PKGBUILD files work so that was fun!

Worth noting that the ~/.config/JetBrains/IntelliJIdea2020.3/ directory is never created, AND the older ~/.config/JetBrains/IntelliJIdea2020.2/ has files that are touched by the install process (timestamps). The older ~/.config/JetBrains/IntelliJIdea2020.2/idea.jdk is/was set to use /home/elijah/.config/JetBrains/IntelliJIdea2020.2/jdks/jbrsdk-11_0_7-linux-x64-b944.20/jbrsdk which is the bundled Java 11 but 2020.3 just never gets created and I guess that is where it tries to use a default 1.8.

@ElijahLynn: perhaps you weren't, as I get:

Runtime version: 11.0.9+11-b1145.21 amd64
VM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o.

@ElijahLynn no idea, internal JDK11 is working fine for me.

ElijahLynn commented on 2020-12-01 23:26

Just updated from 2020.2 and am getting:

Cannot start under Java 1.8.0_265-b01: Java 11 or later is required.

I was using the internal bundled Java that ships with IntelliJ, fwiw. Don't know how to change the version, since it won't start.

Edit: Created upstream issue here

@aembleton: it's just a glitch while downloading, that happens every now and then. Just retry to run makepkg.

aembleton commented on 2020-11-26 13:39

I get the following error:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 416 ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting...

When I try and access the URL with wget, it gets a 302, redirecting the download to but then does successfully download.

This is the first time I've tried installing this package. Does this happen to anyone else?

anthraxx solved this with the community edition, by installing openjfx and putting it on the classpath:

with 2020.2 javafx will not be there an more but java-cef:
