I need to install openjdk-8 on a docker container based on the latest python image (debian 10), but the openjdk-8-jdk package has been removed from the stable debian repository. I've already tried the usual apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk and apt-cache search openjdk only returns the openjdk-11.


I've managed to solve it by manually downloading the packages with wget:

RUN wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/o/openjdk-8/openjdk-8-jre-headless_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb \
&& wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/o/openjdk-8/openjdk-8-jre_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb \
&& wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/o/openjdk-8/openjdk-8-jdk-headless_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb \
&& wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/o/openjdk-8/openjdk-8-jdk_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb

and then install it using the dkpg with the -i --force-all options to install all the required dependencies:

RUN dpkg -i --force-all openjdk-8-jre-headless_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb openjdk-8-jre_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb openjdk-8-jdk-headless_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb openjdk-8-jdk_8u212-b03-2~deb9u1_amd64.deb

  • @DimitriKopriwa the packages have been updated. These are the new packages available: http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/o/openjdk-8/openjdk-8-jdk_8u232-b09-1~deb9u1_amd64.deb. You can find all of them here: debian – Emil Chitas Jan 8 at 9:46

openjdk is not available anymore, you can check it here You can try to download the source code and compile it.

  • Your answer is not very correct. openjdk is still available for Debian 10, but only in the supported openjdk-11 version. openjdk-8 is now unsupported and not officially available in Debian 10 anymore. – GiantTree Jul 19 '19 at 9:28
