I am only guessing here but it seems that you are trying to install 
manually rather than using the Synaptic Package Manager. Although I am 
running 32-bit system I can see the sun-java jdk sitting in Synaptic 
waiting to be installed. Why not check that all the right Sources are 
selected (System>Administration>Sources) and then let Synaptic install jdk?
