Can't open Intellij Idea on Mac Catalina

Answered

Hello! I recently tried to get intellij idea (the latest version), and although I have tried many times to redownload it from https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/#section=mac, the same error shows.  Apparently, the process of the application opening is being immediately terminated somehow. When I try to open it from finder, it says 

“IntelliJ IDEA CE” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Bin.

And if I try to run it from terminal, using the command "/Applications/IntelliJ\ IDEA\ CE.app/Contents/MacOS/idea", this line pops up after the error message that's shown above:

zsh: killed     /Applications/IntelliJ\ IDEA\ CE.app/Contents/MacOS/idea

Not sure why this is happening, can someone help?

Which file did you download, for Intel or for Apple Silicone? What CPU do you have?

Intel as the default option, my CPU is 2,6 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5.

I used this app before a few months ago and worked well, but I somehow can't use it anymore now. I also checked system preferences - security & privacy and there isn't an option to open intellij...

Never mind, I think something is just wrong with my JDK's. I deleted all the runtime environments in library and restarted my computer, now it works fine. Thanks!
