JAVA being blocked because of security level. However, I am aunable to alter security levels in Ubuntu.
I have dated to the latest JAVA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer pst007x@pst007x-Serval-Professional:~$ java -version java version "1.7.0_45" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)
I get the error:
JAVA(TM) WAS BLOCKED BECAUSE IT IS OUT OF DATE: RUN THIS TIME? / UPDATE?
RUN THIS TIME
Then a pop up:
Your Java version is out of date.
Click Update to install the recommended latest version. Click Block to stop Java content in your browser or Later to continue and be reminded again later.
I select LATER, then it fails, saying:
Your security settings have blocked the application from running with an out of date or expired version of JAVA
.... But I am running the latest Linux version...
Has Ubuntu stopped supporting JAVA now?
Help please! :-)
Verified Java Version Completion checkmark Congratulations!
You have the recommended Java installed (1.8.0-ea).
