Hello, I'm not entirely new to Ubuntu, been using it steadily for half a year now, but I still have some major and minor gaps. The other day, I tried to install Oracle JDK 7, through a repository. I used this code;
but, every time I try to install it, it fails, it gets stuck at 'Removing outdated cached downloads...'. It then proceeds to fail the installation. I don't know what to do, any and all sudo apt-get commands ties an installation attempt of the JDK to it, so every apt-get command will end in an attempt and failure of the JDK installation. I tried deleting the file, no dice, I tried
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
but it didn't work, as it wasn't properly installed. PPA purging didn't work either, as it was a apt-get command, so it just ended with a reinstallation of JDK 7. Any help to removing this completely from my computer? The other java based installations I have are; IcedTea java plugin, and Eclipse with integrated development.
sudo apt-get remove oracle-java7-installer
