    If you want it now: it's not in the repo's (yet), but you can install it manually as well. For example by applying this updated how-to:

    You're welcome.

    Of course this update (6u22) should get into the repositories as well. Both Lucid and Maverick are affected: Lucid has 6u20 and Maverick has 6u21.

    An interesting test for the responsiveness of the Ubuntu security team.

    It appears they're working on it.

    Re: Oracle (Sun) Java JRE 6 update 22

    I've got the Sun JRE installed, dpkg reports it (ii) installed and healthy, but when I type
    Code:
    java -version
    it tells me I am using OpenJDK (IcedTea). I need to run the sun proprietary version, because of a site I visit which requires it (for the time being).

    Code:
    sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
    gets me
    Code:
    update-java-alternatives: directory does not exist: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun
    Any suggestions how to define the sun version as the global default?

    Thanks in advance,
    Daniel

    If you have followed Pjotr123's howto, the command to update your java version should look like this:
    sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/opt/java/32/jre1.6.0_26/bin/java" 1
