its somewhat weird because avro-mapred-1.8.2-hadoop2.jar is included in the hadoop-provided distro, but avro-1.8.2.jar is not. i tried to fix it but i am not too familiar with the pom file.

regarding jline you only run into this if you use spark-shell (and it isnt always reproducible it seems). see SPARK-25783

I think the Avro + Parquet dependency situation is generally
problematic -- see JIRA for some details. But yes I'm not surprised if
Spark has a different version from Hadoop 2.7.x and that would cause
problems -- if using Avro. I'm not sure the mistake is that the JARs
are missing, as I think this is supposed to be a 'provided'
dependency, but I haven't looked into it. If there's any easy obvious
correction to be made there, by all means.

Not sure what the deal is with jline... I'd expect that's in the
"hadoop-provided" distro? That one may be a real issue if it's
considered provided but isn't used that way.
