how to get java 8 for debian 8.10? (openjdk-8-jre)
I followed this guide How To Install Java with Apt-Get on Debian 8 and it specifically said that this will install OpenJDK 8, the latest and recommended version.
But I get java 7 instead.
apt list --installed | grep jdk openjdk-7-jre/oldstable,now 7u181-2.6.14-2~deb8u1 amd64 [installed,automatic] openjdk-7-jre-headless/oldstable,now 7u181-2.6.14-2~deb8u1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
I can neither use
apt-get --config java because I only have one version installed.
I looked in
/etc/apt/sources.list and found that digitalocean have used their own mirrors by default, so I changed it to the default ones from debian and did
apt update, but still no java 8 package available.
I would appreciate some solution to get java 8, thanks!
