Any word on when this will be avaliable?
UPDATE: We finished our analysis of the EULA and determined that we are able to provide this update in the Package Library. The information below is now outdated.
Oracle no longer offers a freely redistributable version of Java 8 JRE. If you need to use the JRE in your environment you are required to have a service contract with Oracle:
Because of these changes, we are no longer able to offer this specific version of Java in the Package Library. Unless we are able to reach an agreement with Oracle you may need to try alternative options. Currently, we are researching pre-compiled versions of OpenJDK (https://openjdk.java.net) like Amazon Corretto (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/corretto/index.html) and AdoptOpenJDK (https://adoptopenjdk.net/). We hope to add one of these solutions to the Package Library soon.
Why in that case am i seeing the update waiting here?

Same. However I use the ALTERNATE package which seems to have not been updated but the variable has causing all my clients to re-install 201-b09 every day this past weekend.
