Cool

To install Java in Ubuntu, use the commands -

#sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk

#sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre-headless

I think you are using the package names wrong.

Regards,
Kedar

Hi,

sounds like your /etc/apt/sources.list needs to be updated. But knowing what to put in there will depend on
(as segfault hints) what version of Ubuntu you are using.

I suspect you may be running an outdated version and as such the repos have moved. If this is the case you'll need to replace all instances of archive.ubuntu.com and security.ubuntu.com with old-releases.ubuntu.com.
If all this is true, you should probably consider upgrading to a current release.
