Please report bugs about Ubuntu in launchpad
(http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+filebug) rather than directly to Debian.

Unfortunately Oracle have withdrawn the license under which Debian and
Ubuntu where able to distribute the sun-java6-* packages (see [0] and
[1]).  As a result they will shortly be dropped from the Canonical
partner archive and will no longer be available - so no fix will be
forthcoming.
