What happened to “WebUpd8” team? Banks homepage asking me for java update but couldn't install update via aptitude.

On jessie machine already managed to install and run it via java-package interface, in Iceweasel too.

"We are unable to verify if Java is currently installed and enabled in your browser."

But still having problem with it on Wheezy: could install java but Iceweasel can't find it.

Already tried to manually set the symbolic link in /etc/alternative/

Any ideas?

  • What about open jdk? Why do you exclusively need Oracle java? (Assume Oracle java since you mention Webupd8 PPA). – Angel Salinas Huerta Jan 24 '16 at 14:57
  • Already tried it, but same issue, didn't worked. – Vasconcelos1914 Feb 1 '16 at 13:28

Couldn't make it work in any other way: java-package made .deb with plugins scripts fixed to 8u71 java couldn't make the Iceweasel recognize the correct version, only the command line interface.

Luckily Webupd8 released the updated version a few days ago, now everything is running smoothly.
