bin/sh required to install DP Installation Server

When attempting to install a Linux Installation Server, the install script errors with a peculiar "/bin/sh is needed by OB2-CORE-A.10.00-1.x86_64" error. Needless to say that this shell clearly exists. Some investigation suggests this is a RPM based issue, but given the installation is script based, I don't want to mess around too much with the installation packages.

OS = Ubuntu 16.04

Any help would be appreciated. Full output follows

  Data Protector version A.10.00 found
  Client detected, installed components:  da

Installing Data Protector A.10.00 Installation Server...

Installing OB2-CORE packet
rpm: RPM should not be used directly install RPM packages, use Alien instead!
rpm: However assuming you know what you are doing...
error: Failed dependencies:
    /bin/sh is needed by OB2-CORE-A.10.00-1.x86_64

  Setup cannot continue. Installation of the Data Protector CORE component failed.
