Oh man Thunderbowl in Allen Park. One of my PE requirements at U of M Dearborn had a class in bowling that was held there. Loved the place, when I grew up in Downriver we had so many bowling alleys. Southgate, Taylor, Allen Park.

Hey Tom,
I just upgraded my Unifi Network Application from 7.3.83 to 8.0.7 using the Unifi upgrade instructions…all went well and the application is functioning as expected. Subsequently, I had Ubuntu upgrades to apply, and in doing so, I got the message about: “The following packages have been kept back: openjdk-11-jre-headless”. I remember setting this to be held back when updating to 7.3.83. I know that the Unfi 8.0.7 update updated Java to version 17. Should the openjdk package now be released for updating? If so what is the correct method for doing so? Also now that on the latest Unifi release, and Java 17 and MongoDB 3.6.8, can Ubuntu 20.04, now be updated to 22.04 if desired? Thanks in advance.

Just as a follow-up to my previous post, I posted similar question to the Unifi community and got a response back from a Team Ubiquiti member:

Blockquote Openjdk-11 wont be used when using 7.5 or newer, it will use OpenJDK-17. So you could probable even remove the package. You may also be interested in using this, maintained by our community user @AmazedMender16

So I first found the Java 11 package using: apt list --installed openjdk-11*, which returned: openjdk-11-jre-headless and then removed it with: apt remove openjdk-11-jre-headless. All functioning as expected.
