OpenJDK 8 packages with bad version numbers (8.u20.b23) were pushed to
[testing]. New packages are now available (8.u11). Unfortunatly as new
package version is lower than the faulty one, pacman should yield the
following when updating:

 warning: jdk8-openjdk: local (8.u20.b23-1) is newer than testing (8.u11-1)
 warning: jre8-openjdk: local (8.u20.b23-1) is newer than testing (8.u11-1)
 warning: jre8-openjdk-headless: local (8.u20.b23-1) is newer than
testing (8.u11-1)

To sort this out, please manually install all 3 packages:

 # pacman -S jre8-openjdk jre8-openjdk-headless jdk8-openjdk
 warning: downgrading package jre8-openjdk (8.u20.b23-1 => 8.u11-1)
