I am trying to install JDK 8 or 9, can't get either to work, so that I can use my laptop for my Java class. When I try to install it I get an error to install. This is what I have done so far:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java9-installer
and I get an error:
download failed Oracle JDK 9 is NOT installed. dpkg: error processing package oracle-java9-installer (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: oracle-java9-installer E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I've tried everything that I could find to remedy this but it all looked to be the same. This happens with version 8 or 9. Once I get this going I plan to install jGrasp since that is what I am familiar with and don't plan on any major programming.
