when i type ./pycharm.sh in terminal it throughs the following error: "Error occured during intialization of VM java/lang/ClassFormatError: Unknown constant tag 101 in class file java/lang/Appendable"

my pycharm folder is in "/opt" and i'm already in that directory

  • docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/16/docs/api/java.base/java/lang/… ...Something got screwed up with the install, perhaps.

  • PyCharm is Java based. As far as I remember it should contain on own JRE it can use but may be it tries to use an outdated installed JRE? Make sure an OpenJDK JRE or JDK is installed, e.g. OpenJDK 11 (the common LTS Java Version at the moment) and selected as default JRE.
