Bug#409302: update-java-alternatives is broken

Package: java-common
Version: 0.25
Severity: grave

After migrating from java 1.5 to java6, my jre was not
working anymore in my browser, complaining it could not find the java
binary. After following the symlinks, I found out that /etc/alternatives
was still pointing to java 1.5.
/usr/share/doc/sun-java6-bin/README.alternatives said that I should type
(this should probably been done automagically during upgrade and I
guess it has been designed to be this way, but it seems flawed)

update-java-alternatives --jre java-6-sun

But the script does not work (it only prints the help messages).
