How To Install Java on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Install Java on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Java on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Java is the most popular object-oriented programming language. Java is indispensable for many Linux developers and professionals who need it to either develop applications or run other applications already created.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Java programming language on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Java on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt commands in the terminal.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install libc6-x32 libc6-i386

Step 2. Installing Java on Ubuntu 22.04.

  • Install Java 11.

By default, Java is not available on Ubuntu 22.04 base repository. Now run the following command below to install Java 11 to your Ubuntu system:

sudo apt install openjdk-11-jdk

Once the installation is complete, you can verify it by checking the Java version:

java -version
  • Install Java 8.

Now run the below command to install OpenJDK 8 package:

sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk

Verify the Java version installed:

java -version
  • Install Oracle Java 14.

To begin the installation, use the following terminal command:

wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2F; oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" "https://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/14.0.1+7/664493ef4a6946b186ff29eb326336a2/jdk-14.0.1_linux-x64_bin.deb"

Once you download the Debian file, install it on your system using the command below:

sudo dpkg -i jdk-14.0.1_linux-x64_bin.deb

To confirm the installation, run the following command:

java -version
