error when install something

I am receiving the following error when I
sudo apt-get install (something)

sha256sum mismatch jdk-7u3-linux-x64.tar.gz
Oracle JDK 7 is NOT installed.
dpkg: error processing oracle-java7-installer (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Setting up compiz-plugins (1: ...
Setting up compiz-plugins-main (1: ...

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Is there anything to fix this ?

Their maybe something wrong with the source of "something". This implies the software is not the original by the developer. You may want to use different repositories for it.

jdk-7u3-linux-x64.tar.gz can be downloaded from oracle, but I do not really understand how did you try to install it.
