I received that same advice a couple of days ago and unfortunately it
did not work for me. I see you are /i386 while mine is /amd64. I made
so many changes trying to get it to work I probably put the system in
such a state that it had no chance to work, so I reformatted and
reinstalled Ubuntu. I am just about ready to tackle java and firefox
again, this time in a more orderly manner, I hope.
