Question Problem with Installing Packages


Hi,

I am using Ubuntu 9.04.
and whenever I open my Synaptic Package Manager, It shows error occurred and ask to run

sudo dpkg --configure -a
to solve the problem

but when I run the Command it prints:

Setting up sun-java6-doc (6-14-0ubuntu1.9.04) ...
This package is an installer package, it does not actually contain the
JDK documentation. You will need to go download one of the
archives:

jdk-6u10-docs.zip jdk-6u10-docs-ja.zip

(choose the non-update version if this is the first installation).
Please visit

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/

now and download. The file should be owned by root.root and be copied
to /tmp.

[Press RETURN to try again, 'no' + RETURN to abort]


Even try to install debian package directly without repository then too default package installer also shows the same output.

I tried to download the file jdk-6u10-docs.zip and jdk-6u10-docs-ja.zip. But dont know what to do.

pls Help....
Thanks in Advance.

Code:

sudo chown root:root jdk-6u10-docs-ja.zip
sudo cp jdk-6u10-docs.zip /tmp
sudo cp jdk-6u10-docs-ja.zip /tmp
sudo dpkg --configure -a

Perhaps because not all the needed files where in the repo,
or the files in /tmp where deleted during or after the initial setup
