Over the last couple of months, I've received several notifications about a Java (not JavaScript!!) update being available for my Win7

the Update could not be installed.

If I go to Start->Control Panel->Java (32bit) Control Panel and
select "About" on the General tab, it shows "Version 8 Update 161
(build 1.8.0_161-b12)

If I then select the "Update" tab and click the "Update Now" button,
I told there is a Java Update Available (Java 8 Update 181) but, when
I then click the "Update >" button, I rapidly get a "Error - Java
Update" window which tells me "Failed to download required
installation files".

Again .... and again ... and again!!

Is it just me?? Is there a problem with my Win7 system??

Anyone got a valid suggestion??

It's really old, but I find that javara is still functional and useful on my Win10 system.  See: https://singularlabs.com/software/javara/

Unfortunately, in my case (win10 x64 bit) JavaRa is not operational any longer.
– Cleaning logs and temporary files created by JRE
– Performing a clean uninstall of JRE
are the features I especially miss.
Does anybody know if Iobit Uninstaller is comparably effective?
