To solve that, I used 'sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-*'. But, on the place of *, you put the rest of the name package. Example:
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-jre-headless

OR DO THIS, and MAYBE work

sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-jre-headless
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-demo
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-dbg
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-doc
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-jre
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-jdk
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-jdk-headless
sudo dpkg --remove --force-all openjdk-9-source

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-*

this problem occurs to me to other java programs as well for example Jitsi, jdownloader or i2p. I just wanted to make clear this is not solely a minecraft error.

For geogebra (the application which brought me here) I found a simple solution on xenial:

$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
$ JAVACMD=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/bin/java geogebra

Works for me.

I got this fatal error trying to run Netbeans. Haven't tried running other Java programs yet
Installed using the command:
sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-overwrite" install openjdk-9-jdk
Got the crash everytime I ran Netbeans.

Tried running:
apt-get update
apt-get install openjdk-9-jdk
apt-get autoremove

Netbeans flashed the startup image for a fraction of a second, then nothing. No crash, no Netbeans.

also affects IzPack. Moreover, I guess it also affects most of the Java Swing GUI programs.
