Java not installed

Postby cakehead on Fri Oct 19, 2007 3:04 pm

I wa trying to install Java J2sdk today and the install stopped. Everytime I now try to enter Install Software I get this message E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report. I have tried in a terminal but I keep getting john@john-celena:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up j2sdk1.4-doc (1.4.2.02-1ubuntu3) ...
warning: file `/usr/share/doc/j2sdk1.4-doc/1.4.2/index.html' does not exist at /usr/sbin/install-docs line 821, </usr/share/doc-base/j2sdk1.4-doc> line 11.
warning: file mask `/usr/share/doc/j2sdk1.4-doc/1.4.2/*/*.html' does not match any files at /usr/sbin/install-docs line 826, </usr/share/doc-base/j2sdk1.4-doc> line 11.
This package is an installer package, it does not actually contain the
J2SDK documentation. You will need to go download one of the
archives:

j2sdk-1_4_2-doc.zip j2sdk-1_4_0-doc-ja.zip j2sdk-1_4_2-doc-ja.zip

(choose the non-update version if this is the first installation).
Please visit

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

now and download. The file should be owned by root.root and be copied
to /tmp.

[Press RETURN to try again, 'no' + RETURN to abort]

Does anyone know how I resolve this situation please

Try the various cleaning solutions here

and don't forget man dpkg and man apt-get

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
