it is just necessary for applet

I'm using 5.4, so maybe what I say is not relevant for you.

You seem to have java installed (but not the latest version of the package)

Since the browser doesn't have the applet plugin, opening the web page
above is not relevant: maybe you have java working.
Which application do you want to run?
