Oracle Java

Ubuntu 14.04: apt was updated recently and it broke the Oracle Java 6, 7 and 8 installers available in the WebUpd8 Java PPA. I updated the package this morning so the bug should be fixed.

So if upgrading apt removed Oracle Java, you'll now be able to install it back in Ubuntu 14.04. Make sure you run "sudo apt-get update" before trying to install it though! For how to install Oracle Java in Ubuntu, see:

Thanks to everyone who notified me about this issue and sorry for the delay!
