Hi @Anvi, to install Java on Ubuntu, you just have to type-in some commands on your terminal and it will install the JDK and JRE whatever you wish to install. Please follow the steps to install Java:

1. To install the default JDK, firstly update the package repository:

>>sudo apt-get update
>>sudo apt-get install default-jdk

2. Now if you want to install the default JRE, use following command:

>>sudo apt-get install default-jre

3. To check the installed version, user following command:

>>javac -version
