PDI 8.0 start up error

When I start PDI on Mac HighSierra from the console I get an error message:

"org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Exported package names cannot be zero length."


A detailed log can be found on this Jira ticket: [PDI-16887] PDI Start up error - Pentaho Platform Tracking from somebody else who had the same issue. The ticket was closed stating "in your environment, ${jre-${java.specification.version}} seems to be returning an empty string. Please visit and ask for assistance in getting your environment properly configured."


Somebody has an idea how to fix this?

I have pdi 8.0, Java 10 SDK, MacOS HighSierra
