Using apt

To use the Corretto Apt repositories on Debian-based systems, such as Ubuntu, import the Corretto public key and then add the repository to the system list by using the following commands:

wget -O - https://apt.corretto.aws/corretto.key | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/corretto-keyring.gpg && \ echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/corretto-keyring.gpg] https://apt.corretto.aws stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/corretto.list

After the repo has been added, you can install Corretto 8 by running this command:
