On some systems the Java based installer may fail to run with a notice as shown below even though you are supplying the -c argument. In this case, make sure you have dejavu-sans-font package installed, and also that you have a non headless version of a JRE available to the installer. You can do that with the following yum command on RHEL8.

yum install dejavu-sans-fonts java-1.8.0-openjdk

*******************************************************************
You can also run this application in console mode without
access to an X server by passing the argument -c
