The OSs supported with 2.3.4+ are:

64-bit CentOS 6/7

64-bit RHEL 6/7

64-bit Oracle Linux 6/7

64-bit SLES 11, SP3/SP4

64-bit Debian 6/7

64-bit Ubuntu Precise 12.04/14.04

Windows Server 2008/2012

From those, as well as the list you've shared, I would go with CentOS 6 if you're having challenges with Ubuntu.

Install the following software on each of your hosts:

• yum (for RHEL or CentOS)

• zypper (for SLES)

• php_curl (for SLES)

• reposync (may not be installed by default on all SLES hosts)

• apt-get (for Ubuntu and Debian)

• rpm (for RHEL, CentOS, or SLES)

• scp

• curl

• wget

• unzip

• chkconfig (Ubuntu and Debian)

• tar

For complete instructions and requirements/prerequisites for manual install of HDP (non-Ambari install) please refer to this guide:

I would vote for CentOS 6. Please note that not all of your listed OSs are supported by Ambari 2.2.1.1/HDP 2.4, see this page.
