  Hmm, how can a problem with a package in non-free (Sun's java) can
affect the installation of a package in main (openoffice.org) ? (by
definition of main, a package in main cannot depend on anything not in
main). You must have a broken setup here, or refuse to install free
JVMs, with which OpenOffice.org runs fine.
