Ubuntu – Can’t install Oracle JDK 9

aptjdk

I uninstalled jdk packages and now can't install them back. I managed to install oracle-java7-installer and oracle-java8-installer but can't install oracle-java9-installer. It seems that my computer tries to download wrong version of oracle-java9-installer 177 when version i would be able to download is 178.

For the GA release version of the JDK use:

cd /var/lib/dpkg/info
sudo sed -i 's|SHA256SUM_TGZ="2ef49c97ddcd5e0de20226eea4cca7b0d7de63ddec80eff8291513f6474ca0dc"|SHA256SUM_TGZ="1c6d783a54fcc0673ed1f8c5e8650b1d8977ca3e856a03fba0090198e0f16f6d"|' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|JAVA_VERSION_MINOR=181|JAVA_VERSION_MINOR=181|' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|FILENAME=jdk-${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}+${JAVA_VERSION_MINOR}_linux-${dld}_bin.tar.gz|FILENAME=jdk-${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}_linux-${dld}_bin.tar.gz|' oracle-java9-installer.*
sudo sed -i 's|PARTNER_URL=http://download.java.net/java/jdk${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}/archive/${JAVA_VERSION_MINOR}/binaries/$FILENAME|PARTNER_URL=http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/${JAVA_VERSION_MAJOR}+${JAVA_VERSION_MINOR}/$FILENAME|' oracle-java9-installer.*
