    Ubuntu 16.4 is supported by WAS 8.5.5.11. However, it is not
    included in the WAS OS pre-request checking bundle.
    Therefore, when install WAS on Ubuntu 16.4, Installation
    Manager will issue a WARNING message. In Installation
    Manager silent mode, option user.wasjava=java8 is ignored by
    Installation Manager after it issues the WARNING message.
