Today I logged into my Multicraft server to do a little routine maintenance, software updates.
Once I ran the necessary commands and updated software I noticed that my Minecraft server would not start, spitting out the error below.
Unsupported Java detected (55.0). This version of Minecraft requires at least Java 16. Check your Java version with the command 'java -version'.
That’s odd, because I was running the latest stable version for my distribution, after searching across message boards I discovered that for whatever reason the bleeding edge version of Java is too new for Minecraft to run.
