I was getting the same error while creating Data frames on Spark Shell :

Caused by: ERROR XSDB6: Another instance of Derby may have already booted the database /metastore_db.

Cause:

I found that this is happening as there were multiple other instances of Spark-Shell already running and holding derby DB already, so when i was starting yet another Spark Shell and creating Data Frame on it using RDD.toDF() it was throwing error:

Solution:

I ran the ps command to find other instances of Spark-Shell:

ps -ef | grep spark-shell

and i killed them all using kill command:

kill -9 Spark-Shell-processID ( example: kill -9 4848)

after all the Spark-Shell instances were gone, i started a new Spark-Shell and reran my Data frame function and it ran just fine.
