problem trying to install openjdk-8-jre from default repository

Post by javierpuche » Sun Feb 05, 2017 2:18 pm


I have a fully updated LMDE2 installation with Cinnamon. Trying to install openjdk-8-jre-headless I get a conflict with ca-certificates-java:
openjdk-8-jre-headless : breaks: ca-certificates-java (< 20160321~) but 20140324 it is going to be installed
Breaks: ca-certificates-java:i386 (< 20160321~)

Ok, I see the problem my stem from the fact that I have ca-certificates-java installed from jessie-backports probably due to libreoffice 5.

So it is my fault, but I would appreciate any help if someone knows how I could get to install openjdk-8-jre even with libreoffice5 installed from jessie-backports. Thanks in advance.

After all maybe upgrading java in my LMDE2 is not necessary (neither convenient?)
