    Did you mean sudo nano /etc/enviroment ? – Videonauth May 15 '16 at 18:31

You are trying to run /etc/environment as a command. If you want to edit it, you can use nano or vim (if you are beginner I would recomend nano).

Type STUDIO_JDK=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64 inside and press Ctrl+O to save, then Ctrl+X to exit nano.

    If OP's editing /etc/environment, export shouldn't be used. – muru May 15 '16 at 18:36
