Unable to install Java JDK 6 on Ubuntu 13.10 x64?

I followed the instructions as per this webpage https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-java-on-ubuntu-with-apt-get

The following is the output

Steps to install Java, <br> <br>apt-get update <br> <br>apt-get upgrade <br> <br>sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk <br> <br>This solution had worked for me you can maybe try it out.

I prefer to use Oracle JDK, <br> <br>I had to manually install it it <br> <br>First was to download jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin from Oracle <br> <br>Then execute the following commands <br> <br> chmod +x jdk-6u45-linux-* <br> mkdir /usr/lib/jvm/ <br> cp jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin /usr/lib/jvm/ <br> cd /usr/lib/jvm/ <br> ./jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin <br> update-alternatives --install “/usr/bin/java” “java” “/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.6.0_45/bin/java” 1 <br> update-alternatives --install “/usr/bin/javac” “javac” “/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.6.0_45/bin/javac” 1 <br> update-alternatives --install “/usr/bin/javaws” “javaws” “/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.6.0_45/bin/javaws” 1 <br> update-alternatives --config java <br> update-alternatives --config javac <br> update-alternatives --config javaws <br>

Or you can use the one Darius mentioned. Which is a newer version.
