For some reason you can't accept the licence with Adept, It's a known issue.
You have to do it from Konsole, or Synaptic (of you have it installed).
So open Konsole from: Kmenu -> System -> Konsole and in it type:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
that should continue from adept and ask you to accept the licence, if 
nothing happens use:
sudo apt-get install sun-java5-jre

On to problem number two,
also use this if you get an error about /var/lib/dpkg/lock when trying 
to use dpkg or apt-get
this command (also in konsole) should help:
sudo fuser -k /var/lib/dpkg/lock

if not then use: sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock

Now you should have Java JRE installed, and adept will work again.
