View Full Version : [ubuntu] jave problems

April 26th, 2008, 10:01 PM
So I tried to install Java using
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

and then it brough up a screen that said whether or not I agree to java liscence. I didn't know how to continue forward because I could figure out how to click ok. So I canceled out of the screen. Now it's saying
"dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem."
but when I try to run this in the terminal it says
dpkg: requested operation requires superuser privilege

But I thought I already had superuser privileges.

So what do I do?

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Let me know how it goes.
