Problem :

I've tried twice to update Java 8 twice and both time the download failed. Java (jdk) 8 u65, Windows 7, 64 bits.

I have a popup with ERROR: Download failed: from=http://javadl.oracle.com/webapps/download/GetFile/1.8.0_66-b18/windows-i586/au.msi

Solution :

To ressolve the issue please try the offline installer. The failure here indicates that one of the files being downloaded with the online installer is having an issue. Downloading the offline installer should work around this.

1. Go to https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

2. Click on "Windows Offline".
