For anyone else with the same issue, make sure you have java 1.8 install. I had 1.11 which was the default on Ubuntu 20 and it causes the crash upon start up.

You can install 1.8 alongside 1.11 and switch between them.

Install it by running

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

Then you can show the installed versions by running

update-java-alternatives --list

And on my system that produced:

java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64      1111       /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64
java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64       1081       /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64

Then to switch between then you refer to the path shown in the output of the above command

sudo update-java-alternatives --set /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64

Note, you need sudo permissions for this to work.

Hope that helps someone.
