You might want to remove what you installed because that might conflict whith what eclipse want's to pull down.

Why on earth would you want to run netbeans on a linux. Netbeans is primarily designed for windows, and while they "support" linux (according to them) that stuff dosen't really works.

My recommendation to you is to use eclipse instead. In a terminal run:

apt-get install eclipse

And this will download everything needed for java development. (Also on a personal note: Eclipse's workspace management makes more sense than netbeans'.)
