Unable to restart Elasticsearch after installing readonlyrest


i hope anyone can help me. I tried to install elasticsearch and Readonlyrest. (Version 8.7.1)

The installation works, but can’t restart ES. I got this error:

[2023-05-05T13:09:41,032][INFO ][t.b.r.b.LogPluginBuildInfoMessage$] [livesystem-debian] Starting ReadonlyREST plugin v1.48.0 on Elasticsearch v8.7.0

        at org.elasticsearch.plugins.PluginsService.loadPlugin(PluginsService.java:641) ~[elasticsearch-8.7.0.jar:?]

Anyone knows whats wrong here?
