I do not want any Java runtime environments installed on my system. I have installed all the software and applications I want installed on my system. Yet I keep finding additional stuff gets installed when automatic updates update.
I have Main (security and recommended) and Universe updates activated. Despite the fact that I have repeatedly disabled Restricted and Multiverse, they somehow keep getting reactivated. That is, when I got to Update manager > Settings they have gotten activated again. Is there a way to permanently disable Restricted and Multiverse?
What do I need to do to tell Ubuntu to only accept updates for already installed stuff and to NOT install anything new? Is there a way I can specifically blacklist JAVA from ever being installed?
I'm assuming this is a MASSIVE bug that exists in 11.10 and hopefully 12.04 will fix it. But what can I do in the meantime?
