I updated my installation of the sun-java6-jdk package today to version 6.24-1build0.10.10.1 after being prompted by the update manager. However this now causes some compilation failures so I'd like to revert back to the previous version that I had installed.
I've tried using Synaptic but the 'Force Version' menu command is disabled.
I've tried the following command to install the previous version
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk=6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10
But I'm not sure that I have the correct version:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Version ‘6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10’ for ‘sun-java6-jdk’ was not found
I've taken this version number from this changelog: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+changelog
Is this the correct way to install a previous version of a package? Have I got the correct version from the sun-java6 change log?
