On the first install, Image J was running fine using both the Java included with it or Oracle Java 8.On my new install, and although I cannot think of anything different from the previous install...After booting with kernel 4.4.0-79 (and presumably any earlier kernels) Image J / FIJI are working without a problem. If it is a general bug in the Linux kernel (or Ubuntu flavor thereof), which affects more people than just Image J users, I expect it will be fixed relatively quickly upstream.Edit: mabruce's suggestion of launching with the --system option works for me with 4.4.0-81 I have the same issue and using --system flag solves it. But if it is a bizarre interaction with the Image J launcher specifically, maybe not.Open JDK is an open source implementation of Java application.
I ran into the exact same problem today in Ubuntu 16.04 after updating to 4.4.0-81. More investigation is needed to determine the scope of this problem.

So the solution is to first upgrade the package(s) which does not conflict, and also use 'gtkorphan' to purge some old used packages and their settings which probably disturb the transitional process .
There are more than one version of Java can be installed and running on same computer and also it’s possible to have different version of JDK and JRE simultaneously on a machine, actually there are abundant of applications that requires Java-jre (Java Runtime Environment) and those who are developer required Java-sdk (Software Development Kit).
A lots of Linux distribution comes with other version of Java called Open JDK (not the one developed by Sun Microsystems and acquired by Oracle Corporation).
