Spark Job on BDA Edge Node Fails to Run and Gives Message "Only local additional python files are supported" (Doc ID 2535178.1)

A spark version 2.2 job on an edge node of a BDA 4.11 / CDH 5.13.1 cluster is being run with the job command line below:

When trying to run with this syntax, an error is raised in the spark shell and the job does not run. The error is:

"Only local additional python files are supported"

It seems that the job fails due to the reference "hdfs:/<FQ_HOSTNAME>/wbdata/artif/lib/python/<FILE>.egg."

If the egg file is place in the local (edge node) HDFS filesystem, it runs fine.

The goal is to determine if there is any other workaround to this issue.
