I uninstalled jdk packages and now can't install them back. I managed to install oracle-java7-installer and oracle-java8-installer but can't install oracle-java9-installer. It seems that my computer tries to download wrong version of oracle-java9-installer 177 when version i would be able to download is 178.

    Definitely not a network issue. The file doesn't exist. – Nathan J.B. Jul 23 '17 at 5:44
  • Just tried to install from the webupd8 PPA and it was successful without having to modify any of the files mentioned in previous answers. – mkobit Oct 2 '17 at 15:06

For the GA release version of the JDK use:

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info
sudo sed -i 's|SHA256SUM_TGZ="2ef49c97ddcd5e0de20226eea4cca7b0d7de63ddec80eff8291513f6474ca0dc"|SHA256SUM_TGZ="1c6d783a54fcc0673ed1f8c5e8650b1d8977ca3e856a03fba0090198e0f16f6d"|' oracle-java9-installer.*

Prefer a friend solution

sudo apt-get install oracle-java9-installer
cd /var/lib/dpkg/info
sudo sed -i 's/=177/=179/' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's/SHA256SUM_TGZ="a6905f3a4245a071880e1793b8d3d6100ef7b171ea1d6ebfe6312c25c2fca8bb"/SHA256SUM_TGZ="06fe58dfa50c4f6ca21dc1d475f16cd9e58db36b1d98582091d7ff9005dda7a7"/' oracle-java9-installer.*

I've just experienced the same problem and done the following:

  1. cd /var/lib/dpkg/info/
  2. in all files oracle-java9-installer.* change version numbers 177->178 and SHA256SUM_TGZ to what you see on the official website
  3. sudo apt-get install oracle-java9-installer

I know that it is dirty and incorrect way, but I didn't manage to find any alternatives

  • "and SHA256SUM_TGZ to what you see on the official website" Could you provide said value, or website's url ? I feel like I'm looking for a needle in a haystack – Balmipour Jul 21 '17 at 14:57
  • I found the SHAs here: jdk.java.net/9 (accept the terms first). I'm working through Olga's solution to see if it works now... – Nathan J.B. Jul 23 '17 at 5:44
  • Confirmed that it works! Make sure you get the SHA256 from the correct Linux type (ARM vs not; 32 vs 64). You don't need to replace ALL of the SHA256 hashes -- only the one for the architecture your computer uses. – Nathan J.B. Jul 23 '17 at 5:52
  • Thanks alot! you saved me from creating new VM which would have took for like 1-2 working days! – Akseli Arvaja Jul 24 '17 at 7:06
  • askubuntu.com/a/966163/46543 answer works now (2017-10-18). – Lord Loh. Oct 19 '17 at 1:42

The newest version of the installer, 9.0.1-1~webupd8~0, now functions properly.

Previous answers do not work for version 9b181-1~webupd8~2 of the installer, and some previous versions.

Note, the JDK version is 9.0.1 now, not 9 (beta) as this installer expected. It was out of date, downloads had been (re)moved also, so it couldn't even get the old beta to install.

The following worked:

sudo apt-get install oracle-java9-installer

You can use ls oracle-java9* to see relevant files in this directory:

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info

Fix the incorrect sum, in oracle-java9-installer.config actually:

sudo sed -i 's|SHA256SUM_TGZ="2ef49c97ddcd5e0de20226eea4cca7b0d7de63ddec80eff8291513f6474ca0dc"|SHA256SUM_TGZ="2cdaf0ff92d0829b510edd883a4ac8322c02f2fc1beae95d048b6716076bc014"|' oracle-java9-installer.*

Fix a second incorrect sum, in oracle-java9-installer.postinst:

sudo sed -i 's|SHA256SUM_TGZ="1c6d783a54fcc0673ed1f8c5e8650b1d8977ca3e856a03fba0090198e0f16f6d"|SHA256SUM_TGZ="2cdaf0ff92d0829b510edd883a4ac8322c02f2fc1beae95d048b6716076bc014"|' oracle-java9-installer.*

Next:

sudo sed -i 's|JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR=9|JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR=9.0.1|' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|JAVA_VERSION_MINOR=181|JAVA_VERSION_MINOR=11|' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|J_DIR=jdk-9|J_DIR=jdk-9.0.1|' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|FILENAME=jdk-${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}+${JAVA_VERSION_MINOR}_linux-${dld}_bin.tar.gz|FILENAME=jdk-${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}_linux-${dld}_bin.tar.gz|' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|PARTNER_URL=http://download.java.net/java/jdk${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}/archive/${JAVA_VERSION_MINOR}/binaries/$FILENAME|PARTNER_URL=http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}+${JAVA_VERSION_MINOR}/$FILENAME|' oracle-java9-installer.*

Then install, again:

sudo apt-get install oracle-java9-installer

You can also download the java9 tgz package separately and place it in /var/cache/oracle-jdk9-installer once you have tried (and failed) installing (it will make the directory). After performing the above fixes it will install from the cached version (keep a backup copy) instead of trying to download again.

  • This is the solution that worked for me on 2017-10-18. java 9.0.1 Thank you! – Lord Loh. Oct 19 '17 at 1:41
  • worked, but this solution will be temporal until PPA maintainer updates the files permanently and applies the new version schema – logoff Oct 19 '17 at 8:19
  • Thanks, this also worked for me after many headaches trying to get it installed. – Blake Niemyjski Oct 20 '17 at 13:39
  • PPA works out of the box for now... Until something changes :-) – Lord Loh. Oct 21 '17 at 23:23
