If you're using Linux Mint, why are you using rpm packages? I thought Linux Mint uses deb packages. Debian has a package called sun-java6-jre. Maybe Linux Mint has something similar.

Also you noramally install packages as root or using sudo. Have you tried that?

I was having similar problems

and I solved them by performing a 'sudo apt-get purge sun-java-6-jre' and then reinstalling. The reinstallation occurred without problems. I had 1.6.0_22 installed and was trying to upgrade to 1.6.0_24. It had worked on one computer, but not the other. Now they're both upgraded.

I had renamed the /usr/lib/jvm directory and had also moved all references for java from the /usr/bin directory and /etc/alternatives directory before the purge, but I don't think that was necessary. I was just trying to have a restore point, if needed.
