I have the latest Java 8 JRE on my PC which I try to keep up to date. I recently tried to install a later version of Java (like Java 11) and I got really confused because I couldn't install any JRE and I didn't need the JDK.

I am not a developer and I was wondering, as just a user, do I actually need to install Java 11? And if yes, how can I do that?
