Upgrading to the latest version of Java ensures that Java applications will run with the most up-to-date security and performance improvements on your system. You can confirm that you have the latest version on the verification page. If installing an older version of Java is absolutely required, you must first uninstall the current version.

Allow me to clarify. In your answer, you write "Afterwards, you will need to do the sudo ln -snf mentioned in the answer above;". Answers move up or down based on the number of up votes they get.
