I am trying to install the java re and java dk in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I tried using this link ubuntu help java. I used the first link for installing and clicked yes. I was warned that some of the packages were not able to be downloaded. I click to proceed, and afterwards the following message was brought up as an error having occurred:
W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openjdk-6/openjdk-6-jre-lib_6b20-1.9.10-0ubuntu1~10.04.3_all.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 126.96.36.199 80] W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openjdk-6/openjdk-6-jre-headless_6b20-1.9.10-0ubuntu1~10.04.3_i386.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 188.8.131.52 80] W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openjdk-6/icedtea-6-jre-cacao_6b20-1.9.10-0ubuntu1~10.04.3_i386.deb 404 Not Found [IP: 184.108.40.206 80]
I went to the terminal and used
java -version to get this output:
alex@alex-laptop:~$ java -version The program 'java' can be found in the following packages: * gcj-4.4-jre-headless * openjdk-6-jre-headless * cacao * gij-4.3 * jamvm Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
This was the same output as before though. I subsequently tried to install via the synaptic package manager choosing
default-jre-headless 1.6-34 which included the
openjdk-6-jre-headless as well as other packages. This gave me the same errors as before using the web install.
Was the installation aborted due to these errors? If these failed are alternative download methods or is the error from my connection or system configuration? How to then proceed with installing java RE and then java DK?
Or is it simply a server/connection problem that will get fixed in time and I should try again later?
sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre-headless and the installation failed again giving
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
