Delete old Java 8 updates listings

I have about twenty updates for Java 8 listed on my computer.

May I safely delete all listed updates except the latest?

Thank you.

Welcome,

Yes you may and should. Also, the latest versions/updates of JAVA will remove old versions during the install if you select that option.
