openjdk-8-jre & frostwire


I've had frostwire on my Linux Mint system for a while but after a recent new release I can't update/upgrade frostwire anymore. When I try I get the following error.

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: openjdk-8-jre

After running 'apt-cache search openjdk' I didn't see any packages that were jdk 8.

Now I'v also went to the oracle website and downloaded a jdk 8 package but all it is is a .tar file that I extract with a bunch of files in it with no installer. What can I do with this?

Hi...

Take a look at the instructions here, under "JDK 8" and see if that helps.

JDK 8

Debian, Ubuntu, etc.

On the command line, type:

$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

Above is from the link you posted.

Below is my results

$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

Sorry, try again.

Hi...

You didn't mention the distribution and version of Linux you're using but if it's Ubuntu 16.04 (or later,) you can simply download and install the .deb package here. You might also need to install any needed dependencies listed on that page. If Debian Jessie, Sid or Stretch, please see here.

Regards...
