0.2.35 worked for me only after removing the latest version and then running through the complete setup again:

yarn remove serverless-dynamodb-local
yarn add serverless-dynamodb-local@0.2.35
sls dynamodb install

Also perhaps worth noting that if the java sdk isn’t installed, an error will occur with a link just to java and not the sdk and so installing it will not help. Google java sdk for latest versions/OS.

In case you want to use the latest version (0.2.36) check this issue https://github.com/99xt/serverless-dynamodb-local/issues/195.

after upgrading running the install command like this fixed the issue for me (on MacOS) sls dynamodb install --localPath ./bin
