New to ubuntu, I have just installed the OS in my VMPlayer. I am trying to install Oracle (Sun) Java 6 onto my Ubuntu 13.
As per the instruction given here I download jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin from the official site. Followed further instructions of chmod as give in the link. But the unpacking step fails with the following error :
Unpacking... Checksumming... Extracting... ./install.sfx.29727: 1: ./install.sfx.29727: ELF: not found ./install.sfx.29727: 2: ./install.sfx.29727: Syntax error: ")" unexpected Failed to extract the files. Please refer to the Troubleshooting section of the Installation Instructions on the download page for more information.
And a failed encoding file is created in the pwd.

I am not able to understand the error messages or the issue at hand. Please advice. How can I install java onto my system
