Installing Oracle Java 11 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

To install Oracle Java 11, add the PPA to your package manager:

[email protected]:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxuprising/java

Press enter to acknowledge the the notification and continue. Install Java JDK 11 with the following command:

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java11-installer-local

At this point you will need to accept the licence agreement to proceed:

Accept Oracle Java 11 Licence Agreement
Accept Oracle Java 11 Licence Agreement

Navigate to the Oracle Java archive page and download the correct Java version. Here I need to download jdk-11.0.4.

Download Java SE Development Kit 11.0.4
Download Java SE Development Kit 11.0.4

Once downloaded, you will need to copy the installation file to the server you want to install Java on. For me this was:

[[email protected] ~]$ scp -v -P1022 Downloads/jdk-11.0.6_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz [email protected]:/home/andy

Inflate with:

[email protected]:~$ gunzip jdk-11.0.6_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz

Then copy it to /var/cache/oracle-jdk11-installer-local/:

[email protected]:~$ sudo cp -v jdk-11.0.6_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz /var/cache/oracle-jdk11-installer-local/
'jdk-11.0.6_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz' -> '/var/cache/oracle-jdk11-installer-local/jdk-11.0.6_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz'

Finally install with:

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java11-installer-local

If you have multiple Java versions installed, you can set Java 11 as the default version by installing oracle-java11-set-default-local:

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java11-set-default-local

Check that is now installed with:

[email protected]:~$ java -version
java version "11.0.6" 2020-01-14 LTS
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.6+8-LTS)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.6+8-LTS, mixed mode)

You can also check by writing and compiling a quick HelloWorld example if you wish.
