Ubuntu 17.10 (GNU/Linux 4.13.0-16-generic x86_64)
After installing java with the command:
sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk-headless
I have java version 8u151
But because of the bug (https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8189789) I need to install the previous update of Java 8 u144 or u131 whatever.
To see available versions:
$ apt-cache policy openjdk-8-jdk-headless openjdk-8-jdk-headless: Installed: (none) Candidate: 8u151-b12-0ubuntu0.17.10.2 Version table: 8u151-b12-0ubuntu0.17.10.2 500 500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful-updates/main amd64 Packages 500 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful-security/main amd64 Packages 8u144-b01-2 500 500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful/main amd64 Packages
And when I try to install
$ sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk-headless=8u144-b01-2 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: openjdk-8-jdk-headless : Depends: openjdk-8-jre-headless (= 8u144-b01-2) but 8u151-b12-0ubuntu0.17.10.2 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Here I stucked.
The question: How to install exact update of OpenJDK 8?
