the linux uprising ppa is currently forcing version 11 of java on us.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxuprising/java
that's nice I like modern and being up to speed, but I have an app that'll only run with java 10.
webUpD8 stopped after 9 and linux uprising started at 10 and that worked (apparently..., I personally never got to test it) until they released 11 and now when you type :
sudo apt install oracle-java10-installer
you get :
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package oracle-java10-installer is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'oracle-java10-installer' has no installation candidate
only typing :
sudo apt install oracle-java11-installer
will work. that's the package that's being referenced above.
clearly something was done that was a little sloppy :
what are my options?
