Installing Java 13 on Ubuntu is pretty simple.

All that was needed was

sudo apt install openjdk-13-jdk

sudo update-alternatives --config java

Of course, it would be better if you are on the latest version of Ubuntu so that the apt actually finds it there. (I am currently using Ubuntu 19.04). You can obtain this information by

lsb_release -a

After that, all that was needed was to properly configure the Java path where you can easily find where it is from doing

sudo update-alternatives --config java

Please do note that using the which java and using that path does not work as it is not the SDK.
