Debian updating java

For Oracle Java 8, see: How To Install Oracle Java 8 In Debian Via Repository [JDK8] To add the Web Upd8 Oracle Java PPA repository to the Software Sources in Debian (tested on Debian Squeeze, but it should work with any Debian version), use the following commands:su - echo "deb xenial main" | tee /etc/apt/d/webupd8echo "deb-src xenial main" | tee -a /etc/apt/d/webupd8apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys EEA14886 apt-get update apt-get install oracle-java7-installer exit Tip: if you're behind a firewall / router that blocks some of the redirects required to download the Oracle Java archive, you can download the JDK archive manually and place it under /var/cache/oracle-jdk7-installer - then, installing the "oracle-java7-installer" package will use the local archive instead of trying it to download it itself.

This requires a line such as to download and apply the pending updates.

The security archive is signed with the normal Debian archive signing keys.

This package contains data required for the implementation of standard local time for many representative locations around the globe.

It is updated periodically to reflect changes made by political bodies to time zone boundaries, UTC offsets, and daylight-saving rules.

Should I use aptitude or dpkg to remove the old version before I install the new or do dpkg and aptitude deal with that automatically?

Ok, so I guess I can assume that if Oracle's Verify Java is showing the latest Java 7 update 51, the only reason my online banking isn't going through is because my bank hasn't updated their code?

For more information about security issues in Debian, please refer to the Security Team FAQ and a manual called Securing Debian.

RSS These web pages include a condensed archive of security advisories posted to the debian-security-announce list.

Read and accept the Oracle Binary Code License Agreement for Java SE.

Download the current file for "Linux ARM v6/v7 Soft Float ABI" and save in a location where you have write access.

What other uses does the java package have outside the browser, other than programming that is?
