Oracle Java (JDK) 8 Installer PPA (DISCONTINUED)
« on: July 22, 2019, 03:45:06 pm »
I installed Java 8 to have all features of Open Office working.  Now when I apply updates I get the message containing "Oracle Java (JDK) 8 Installer PPA (DISCONTINUED)" .  How do I correct this problem?

I take it you installed java 8 via this webupd8 PPA ?
https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/ubuntu/java
if do you're going to want to
a) disable that PPA
b) install java 11
