Tried installing netbeans and eclipse but both give the following errors (is this caused because the server is down and will be restored soon? I've not been able to use apt-get to install the missing packages either. Also tried http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk7-downloads-1880260.html but it says that ls, mkdir etc are missing when it is not actually missing):

Try changing the repository mirror. You can find a good guide for that here.

If the problem still persists edit your original question to include that you have tried to change the mirror.

If your interested you could also take a look at my answer about managing Java JDK in Ubuntu.

I had downloaded the RPM, which turned out to be incompatible with Ubuntu. So I downloaded the tar file and this answer helped me install it.
