thanks for the suggestion
I already looked at this -  my problem is I cannot revert to the .22
version without removing the .24 version and then getting the broken
package problem (i have tried twice)
if I run
 sudo update-java-alternatives -l
I get 
java-6-openjdk 1061 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk
java-6-sun 63 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun

I know I have the sun .24 version installed at present as if I try to
mend the package after removing .24 and then installing .22 (which is
the point I get a broken package)it just updates them to .24
