FWIW, for OS X I just set this in my .bash_profile

alias jpackage=${jdkhome}"/bin/jpackage"
alias jlink=${jdkhome}"/bin/jlink"

That way you aren’t dependent on a hard-coded jdk version name.
I think for some of what this does you need jlink as well and neither of these commands (jpackage,jlink) appear to point anywhere after a drag and drop install into JavaVirtualMachines.
jshell does seem correct and I think it was also introduced with jlink in java 9 so I’m not sure why both aren’t pointing correctly.  
I think I asked about this before and it was indicated to be Apple who owned the library holding the symbolic links for these commands and it was up to them to have them pointing correctly?
