I have been trying to install the latest version of java-8. However, I found out that the PPA
ppa:webupd8team/java has been discontinued due to changes in the java licence.
How should I update my java to 8.0_201 or 8.0_211 now?

I did search for all PPAs on special launchpad page.
You can add this repository and install Java 8 from it with:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ts.sch.gr/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
As you already mentioned, Oracle discontinued providing Java for free. The latest available version is 8. See java.com. If you need a newer version you have to switch to open jdk. To see all avaliable versions, run sudo apt install openjkd-
