dbconnect 2 - [CRITICAL] [rpcstart.py] RPC server has been terminated abnormally with error [Error: dl failure on line 883].

Trying to setup the app and can see the following in the log:

[CRITICAL] [rpcstart.py] RPC server has been terminated abnormally with error [Error: dl failure on line 883].

inputs.conf

[rpcstart://default]
javahome = /opt/splunk/jdk1.8.0_45/jre
port = 9083
useSSL = 0
proc_pid = 27305
Exception = 0

Based on existing answers I assumed it may be related to the javahome setting but If I change the javahome value I get errors saying the directory does not exist, if I have the above value I get the terminated abnormally error.
It doesn't really tell me a lot though, anyone able to offer any guidance or ideas on how I can get to the bottom of this.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app a number of times at this stage 😕

I think you're going too far into the java directory. This works on my server:

bash-4.1$ cat splunk/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/local/inputs.conf 
[rpcstart://default]
javahome = /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_31/
useSSL = 0
proc_pid = 60082
Exception = 0
options = -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC

I spent far too long trying to figure out why we were getting entries like the ones below -- editing the inputs.conf in the /local directory was it!

[CRITICAL] [rpcstart.py] The java path does not exist: /usr/lib/jvm/jre
[CRITICAL] [rpcstart.py] RPC server has been terminated abnormally with error [Invalid java path.].
