I saw this may be ten days ago, and it said some thing about not authorized. My fear was, that this was somehow related with the new (The Oracle JDK License has changed for releases starting April 16, 2019) Java license policy, where you need an account to get any (production ready) JDK update. Let's see, how this develops.
Thanks to the guy who fixed this!
