I've tried installing Sun JDK from
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/java, it failed with the following:

So apparently it's trying to fetch a bad URL. I've installed Java manually, but now the package is stuck as a half-installed and every time I
apt-get install anything, the error appears again.
apt-get install -f shows "1 not fully installed or removed." package and fails with the same error. I've tried
dpkg -P oracle-java7-installer, but it fails as well.
How to remove this half-installed package?
