I assumed you installed your jdk by hand (which is what I did also). apt only knows about software that is installed by the packaging system, so it is unaware of the jdk you have installed.

Fortunately, there is a dummy java package for just such such an occasion:

apt-get install java-virtual-machine-dummy java-common
