I am having this issue:

herlamba@domU-12-31-39-01-F2-1D:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up openjdk-6-jre-headless (6b22-1.10.4-0ubuntu1~11.04.1) ...

and it is just basically stuck in there. What should I do? I am using putty. Doing a control+z gets me out of this, but doesn't stop the process.

I would suggest downloading and installing the oracle-java.bin from Oracle , set it to executable, run it , and then forget openJdk until you figure it out later.
