I haven’t installed anything strange in my Ubuntu 16.04 Server. I did some tests in my Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop VM some hours before and installation was successful, but in my dedicated it seems something is wrong.

Explanation:

  1. I reinstalled the OS on my dedicated from Windows to Linux (Ubuntu Server 16.04)

  2. Just open SSH first time, I go for

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    
  3. Then I tried to install Oracle Java 8

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

Maybe I should try to install Oracle JDK 8?

According to this thread on Ubuntu Forums it seems to be a problem on WebUpd8's side.

Until they fix it, install it manually:

  • where is the download link? there just instructions. – Ubuntu Noob Oct 18 '17 at 19:39

  • for ubuntu x64 server is rpm or witouth rpm? – Ubuntu Noob Oct 18 '17 at 20:18
  • RPM stands for "Red Hat Package Manager". Use it if your distribution is Red Hat. Otherwise, go for DEB – Pedro Galvao Oct 19 '17 at 0:35

    As of today, this link (enhancing @PedroGalvao answer) gives the comands you should run to get Java 8 installed, after getting those errors. – paulochf Jan 17 '18 at 18:19

This problem occurred again because version 161 has been archived. This version is referenced currently by the PPA. You can use the following commands to update the reference to 172 (171+bug fixes, refer Oracle's Java Downloads1):

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info

sudo sed -i 's|JAVA_VERSION=8u161|JAVA_VERSION=8u172|' oracle-java8-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|PARTNER_URL=http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u161-b12/2f38c3b165be4555a1fa6e98c45e0808/|PARTNER_URL=http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u172-b11/a58eab1ec242421181065cdc37240b08/|' oracle-java8-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|SHA256SUM_TGZ="6dbc56a0e3310b69e91bb64db63a485bd7b6a8083f08e48047276380a0e2021e"|SHA256SUM_TGZ="28a00b9400b6913563553e09e8024c286b506d8523334c93ddec6c9ec7e9d346"|' oracle-java8-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|J_DIR=jdk1.8.0_161|J_DIR=jdk1.8.0_172|' oracle-java8-installer.*

and then run

sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

1 Java SE 8u172 is a patch-set update, including all of 8u171 plus additional bug fixes (described in the release notes).

  • I'm wondering if the building of a new apt-package could be automated, based on the current targeted version being archived on the Oracle Java downloads site. – Russ Cam Apr 18 '18 at 0:13

Looks like the problem is that the PPA is trying to download java8U144 which is now an archived version so the URL is different (accessible via http://download.oracle.com/otn/ not http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/)

The only versions that aren't archived and accessible via otn-pub are 151 and 152.

You can use this temporary workaround, until they fix this on their side.

switch to dpkg directory

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info

Then run the following commands :-

sudo sed -i 's|JAVA_VERSION=8u144|JAVA_VERSION=8u152|' oracle-java8-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|PARTNER_URL=http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u144-b01/090f390dda5b47b9b721c7dfaa008135/|PARTNER_URL=http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u152-b16/aa0333dd3019491ca4f6ddbe78cdb6d0/|' oracle-java8-installer.*
