Review the notes on the Third Party Software page about required X11 functionality.  SAS 9.4 Support for Additional Software Products (some text below).  You may want to contact SAS Technical Support for assistance.

The SAS® Download Manager and the SAS® Deployment Wizard provide a windowing interface that requires an X11 server in UNIX and z/OS environments. If an X11 server is not available, console mode enables you to use the SAS Download Manager and the SAS Deployment Wizard in a text-based terminal window without an X11 server.  For details on using console mode, see the SAS® Deployment Wizard and SAS® Deployment Manager 9.4: User's Guide.

Note: When you deploy SAS® Data Integration Server or SAS® IT Resource Management under UNIX or z/OS, you must have a virtual frame buffer such as Xvfb running on the target host if you are using console mode.
