After an upgrade from Ubuntu 16.04 to 16.04.1 where Java JRE 9 and SDK 9 were installed, AstroImageJ 3.2.0 was downloaded and installed but running it failed. The message is:

Previous to JRE 9 , AstroImageJ worked with JRE 8.
Would you be able to revert to JRE 8? We are currently not equipped to
debug/support your new configuration. As FYI, I have asked a person that
has more expertise with Linux than I do, and I will post more if I learn
any additional info.
My collaborator with more linux experience offered the info provided below. I think the best plan is to install Java 8 if possible and give Java 9 more time to mature.
Googling around on the error message returns similar errors abound in early releases of previous JDK's. Probably the solution for now is to regress to 8 if possible. The other recommendation out there is to use the Oracle Java instead of OpenJDK if that's an option.
It is possible he installed Oracle JDK 9 which is said to be a development version in this link, but it is a year old.
I had a similar problem on Ubuntu 15.04, with JRE 9. Install seemed to work fine, but executing the astroimagej binary would fail with
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: begin 0, end 3, length 1
