I created a new Ubuntu 16.04.3 VM and am attempting to install JDK 9. Unfortunately, the latest version of the JDK
9.0.1-1~webupd8~0, is failing to download the binaries and I suspect that the reason is because JDK 9.0.4 was released today and Oracle moved the archives around.
I carried out the typical steps for installation:
add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java apt-get update && apt-get install oracle-java9-installer
I am then prompted with the following error message:

I found this thread that addressed it for the JDK 9 GA, but it does not appear that the latest reply works for JDK 9.0.4+11. I've updated the SHA checksums (found on this page), set the major version to 9.0.4, and set the minor version to 11, but I'm still not having success.
What steps need to be carried out to get the JDK
apt installer to work until the WebUpd8 team is able to update the PPA?
