error in livy - org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException

hello cloudera community,

 

we are having problems using livy with job spark to read hive by jupyter notebook

 

when we run a simple query, for example:

 

"spark.sql("show show databases").show()"

 

returns the error below

"org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.HiveException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.metadata.SessionHiveMetaStoreClient"

 

Could you help us with this setup?

 

ps: we are using cdh 5.16.x
