The last translation drop went into jdk-9+172 so it's out of sync with 
the CLI/usage messages in builds since then. In addition to 
--illegal-access, there are a few other changes to, and at least one 
new, error message(s) that also need updated translations.

Issue is the following static final constant, leading to NoClassDefFound error and a cascade of classes no longer initializing:

jdk-9+175 was supposed to be the first GA candidate so this is why the 
pre-release identifier "ea" was dropped. Hopefully the Hadoop 
maintainers will read JEP 223 to see how to parse version strings going
