Minecraft server authentication error on Ubuntu

This post relates to the previous post I made about running Minecraft on Linux. When running a Minecraft server on Ubuntu Linux (and perhaps other distributions), and error may occur where it says “Unable to contact authentication servers”, or “Authentication servers are down for maintenance”. I discovered that the fix for connection issues for the client also applies here. Simply running the following command corrects this:

sudo /var/lib/dpkg/info/ca-certificates-java.postinst configure
