On Ubuntu I've installed the Sun JRE from http://ppa.launchpad.net/ferramroberto/java/ubuntu oneiric and am at Version 6 update 26. (Outlined in the accepted answer here)

I downloaded the bin file for Version 6 update 31 but don't know how to update Ubuntu to use it.

I tried running the bin file which ran fine, but update-alternatives --config java tells me there's only one java installed in /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java.

Is there some tutorial somewhere that goes through the upgrade process?
