Druid Docker Java 8 installer issue

Hi guys,

Although https://github.com/druid-io/docker-druid seems to be obsolete would appreciate help on the following issue.

However, it seems that Java 8 installer stopped working as expected probably due to Oracle Java (JDK) 8 Installer PPA (DISCONTINUED), but struggling in workaround it.

What would be the best option in installing Java 8 now?

Best regards,


Would just like to provide the error am getting on running the installation script:

Package oracle-java8-installer is not available, but is referred to by another package.

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package ‘oracle-java8-installer’ has no installation candidate



Just to let you know that ended up with the following solution as best as possible replacement for the current Java 8 installer:


You can thank me later :slight_smile:

Thanks for following up with the solution you found
