Dear experts,

Since my Glassfish 3.1.1 runs at a 100% CPU load without reason I am trying to upgrade to Glassfish 3.1.2 for testing. Whenever I try to run pkg or updatetool I receive the following message:

Software needed for this command (pkg) is not installed.

When this tool interacts with package repositories, some system information
such as your system's IP address and operating system type and version
is sent to the repository server. For more information please see:

Once installation is complete you may re-run this command.

Would you like to install this software now (y/n): y

Unrecognized exception: invalid USER image directory

I wasn't able to find a solution to this problem yet after hours of searching!

Could you please give me some advice!

Thanks for your effort!
