If you are using a Mac, to install Java you have to open the dmg package downloaded from the software site and start the Java 8 Update xx executable that is inside. Then click on the Open button, type the password of your user account on OS X (the one you use to access the system) and complete the setup by pressing first on Install assistant and then on Next and Close.
