Resolution

You have already validated that java -version is installed on the host, and the output was similar to

java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_212"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_212-b04)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.212-b04, mixed mode)

Most likely, the java-1.8.0-openjdk : OpenJDK Runtime Environment 8 is not installed on the host, and you are running the OpenJDK Headless Runtime Environment 8, i.e. java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless-1.8.0.212.b04-0.el7_6.x86_64. For a RHEL/CentOS flavour, run rpm -qa | grep java to confirm the OpenJDK Runtime Environment package is installed on the host. If you are on a Debian/Ubuntu distribution, the corresponding command would be dpkg -l | grep java.
