I tried sudo yum update but it just keeps java "1.7.0_75". I need 1.8 for it to work with another application but can't figure out how to upgrade it.
Do I need to manually install it somehow? There's not much information on this on the internet as far as I can see.
java version "1.7.0_75" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (amzn-18.104.22.168.53.amzn1-x86_64 u75-b13) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.75-b04, mixed mode)
When I try update now:
[ec2-________]$ sudo yum update Loaded plugins: priorities, update-motd, upgrade-helper amzn-main/latest | 2.1 kB 00:00 amzn-updates/latest | 2.3 kB 00:00 No packages marked for update
Is there anything else I need to do?
