Docs: WebUpd8 installer discontinued - getting started docs

Description

In the getting started Corda docs the instructions to install Java 8 no longer work: https://docs.corda.net/getting-set-up.html#deb-ubuntu-label

Oracle changed their licensing in APR-2019 so the WebUpd8 team discontinued their installer: https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/ubuntu/java
