The problem is that your dependencies do not take into account which java is user's default, they just say "any one of these will work", and that is not true: if user has one of them installed and it does not correspond to the user's default java, the needed jre will not be installed and the package executable will fail. > > If you want to use Sun's java, please change the alternative.

Yes, that is the solution to my particular problem, but it is not a solution to the bug. > > JOSM really supports both, so it's not wise to just force the dependency on > OpenJDK. I understand.
