you must provide more info. Which command did you issue to install oracle and which ppa do you use to install it. I don't think you are banned. There are dozens of ubuntu servers around the world. To temporarily fix packages integrity run sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get install -f –  kenn Jul 15 at 11:48
    
this is my commands: $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer i'm in iran and iranians were banned from oracle, don't doubt it ! –  user305703 Jul 16 at 9:57
    
Hmm, you use ppa:webupd8team/java but it appears that it attemps to download archives from Oracle's servers. So, yes you are banned. –  kenn Jul 16 at 10:08
    
and what should i do? –  user305703 Jul 16 at 10:29
    
setting proxy may be of help. Look at here askubuntu.com/questions/158557/setting-proxy-from-terminal –  kenn Jul 16 at 10:33

There is nothing wrong with your Ubuntu. The Oracle server is replying 403 Forbidden. The installer is attempting to download from Oracle's servers, which block you because you are in Iran which is subject to U.S. export restrictions. You will need to download the file from another server or country, or use a proxy like Tor to obscure your IP address.

If you have already installed Java, and just want to remove the Ubuntu packages, do:

$ sudo dpkg -P oracle-java-*

remember:I downloaded jdk-8u5-linux-x64.tar.gz from a university server and install oracle manually in /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle and then run some command that post them in next comment. but after them the Ubuntu Software Center return the above error, why?!!!!!!!!!!! x-( –  user305703 Jul 16 at 10:33
    
sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/bin/java" 1 sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/javac" "javac" "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/bin/javac" 1 sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/javaws" "javaws" "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/bin/javaws" 1 sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/java sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/javac sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/javaws sudo chown -R root:root /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle sudo update-alternatives --config java sudo update-alternatives --config javac sudo update-alternatives --config javaws –  user305703 Jul 16 at 10:41
    
@user305703 What was the error from dpkg -P oracle-java*? –  bain Jul 16 at 21:37
    
Never mind, I SOLVED my problem in my own way. thanks –  user305703 Jul 17 at 6:26

  1. I download kerio-control-vpnclient-8.3.2-2261-linux.deb from Kerio Download Center, (First you must choose Kerio Control and then choose the latest version and press show file button. In this state download your own version, my version is Linux (DEB))
  2. After Downloading the Kerio package Download the related documentation. (my doc is README file for Kerio VPN Client - Linux (DEB)) And follow the documentation file.
  3. After them, you can use Kerio VPN Client Linux Ubuntu/Debian for download any banned packages.
  4. Use the below codes for installing Oracle Java 8

    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

    $ sudo apt-get update

    $ sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

  5. Congratulation!
