The jre8-openjdk-headless should contain a release file (containing entries like JAVA_VERSION, OS_NAME, OS_VERSION, OS_ARCH, SOURCE, BUILD_TYPE), which is otherwise shipped with Oracle JRE, since some programs depend on it during runtime.

Additional info:
If you start the Scala REPL (command: scala), it starts with: "cat: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/release: No such file or directory" .
I've already had a mail with Guillaume Alaux, who confirmed that this is something to look into.
This task depends upon
