Answer Source

I found a solution to this problem I have removed all hidden directories generated by Kettle as well as its copy from /opt . Then I have extracted new version copy . after that I have added /opt/data-integration to my path variable and I have tried to run it from my home . Although it was not a successful run but it has generated all those dependent hidden folders required to run it . then I have to go to that directory by issuing

cd /opt/data-integration

and then I was successful to run it by issuing

sh spoon.sh

I have to go to that directory because Pentaho developers has set it so by placing relative path to launcher folder in their main command at spoon.sh.
