"Canonical announced a few hours ago, December 15th, that it
will remove all Sun JDK (Java Development Kit) packages from the
Canonical Partner repository.
"Because Oracle retired the "Operating System Distributor
License for Java", Canonical no longer has permission to
redistribute new Java packages.
"Therefore, in the near future, Canonical will push empty
packages to the repositories, removing Sun JDK from user's machines
through the usual update process."
