Thanks!

First time I've seen an error like that, will try and look into it more.   In the meantime, as a long shot... have you tried the plain java version?  (assuming you'd have OpenJDK or Java installed on your machine).

I followed parts of some steps from similar question asked on another site, changed /etc/apt/sources.conf to stretch instead of jessie, then ran apt-get dist-upgrade, the game now runs. No sound, but will have to keep digging to see what's causing that.
