Hi, and welcome to LQ.

If the page only shows an OK box, just hit enter. The only other option is to quit.

Some times the terminal can not render the page correctly (In my experience) and the button is not where the mouse and display expect it ("work in progress", IMO).

See how you go, Regards, Glenn

Agreeing to java license

I've run into this when installing java from scratch. Just pressing <Enter> will not necessarily execute the <OK> button, unless it's highlighted. To highlight press the Tab key until <OK> is highlighted, then press <Enter>.
Hope that helps!
