Updating Java 7 in Ubuntu


Recommended Posts

Having issues with updating Java 7 in Ubuntu.

At the terminal I have typed the following commands...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-7-oracle

Seems to be an issue with webupd8team.

Tried this several times.

Anyone else having an issue with this?

I am using version 12.04 Ubuntu at the moment.

Should I try another repository (ppa)?

Or should I try tar.gz file?
