You also need to install the keyring for the MX repos--HOAS has another recent thread here on how to add the MX repos to get the MX Tools, which should answer that.

I thought we could have multiple version of openjdk, not just one, and switch between them with the alternatives system. That worked fine on MX 17 (Stretch) when I backported newer openjdks from upstream..but maybe the WTF repo disabled that in their version.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Kodi 18.7, Strawberry 0.6.12, Pale Moon 28.10.0, Xscreensaver 5.44, Krita 4.3.0, Foliate 2.3.0
