I completed this challenge on ArchLinux. I had to install the oracle JDK as the challenge doesn't seem to be configured to recognise the response from OpenJDK.

Install the Oracle JDK on your Ubuntu system, there are instructions online.

If you can't figure it out let me know and I will give you the output I used to pass the challenge when I am back on my desktop.
