I have a problem while trying to install third-party component Oracle Java 8. Every time I type:
$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
I get this answer:

I think I couldn't install Oracle JDK 8. I tried so hard to do this, but I got this error.
This is caused by the fact that the PPA maintainer hasn't updated their scripts yet and older updates of Java 8 are no longer available from Oracle.
To quickly resolve this, you can do the following and install 8u151. (This will only work so long as 8u151 is available from Oracle)
1) Install as normal:
Once that is done and you get the error:
oracle-java8-installer E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
2) You will then have to do the following for 8u151 to be installed:
3) Once you complete the above, you can run the install again and it will succeed.
