Hi there @chenal,

What you need to do is visit the Minecraft’s Website and copying the link that says Download minecraft_server.X.X.X.jar, where the X’s are the latest version of the server.

Then you should be able to follow the steps as normal and just change the minecraft_server_1.15.2.jar with the number that you’ve got from Minecraft’s website.
