I am trying to install jre on my debian 7 kali box, but I keep getting these faulty errors. I tried installing it through aptitude and it fails at the end.

The result is:

dpkg: error processing default-jre-headless (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
openjdk-7-jre-headless:amd64
openjdk-7-jre:amd64
icedtea-7-jre-jamvm:amd64
openjdk-7-jdk:amd64
openjdk-6-jre-headless:amd64
openjdk-6-jre:amd64
openjdk-6-jre-lib
default-jre
icedtea-6-jre-cacao:amd64
icedtea-netx:amd64
icedtea-6-jre-jamvm:amd64
default-jre-headless

I have no idea what the problem is. Can anyone help me with this issue, please?

    what is the exact command that you are running ? – slayedbylucifer Dec 4 '13 at 10:32
  • Well I just typed: aptitude install default-jre:i386 – Debian4Ever Dec 4 '13 at 11:12
  • unrelated: I have seen people installing jdk via aptitude and not jre. – slayedbylucifer Dec 4 '13 at 11:15

    Odd, that means the dependencies weren't satisified, but aptitude should have resolved them. What does apt-get -f install give? – Faheem Mitha Dec 4 '13 at 15:05

    @Debian4Ever You'd first try to update the package list: apt-get update and if you can't still install jre, then try to update the whole system's packages: apt-get upgrade. – Risto Salminen Dec 6 '13 at 14:49
