i think you are using ubuntu and you are on a debian derivative.. so rpm wont work easily in ubuntu.. you need to download alien and convert the .rpm to .deb.

edit: i think you are trying to install jre6.. type
Code:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre

If you use ubuntu, download the deb file instead of the rpm

better we will use synaptic.. the main disadvantage of these individual installation is dependency.. you can try it yourself.right click on desired package and open with gdebi installer

try:

$ whereis java

Also:

$ java -version

This makes sure you have the right Java version mapped to the system's Java symlinks.
