"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."
