Updated it to apache-karaf:v4.4.1, now requiring java-runtime-headless>=11 (Thanks @MarsSeed)

Thanks for the update.

Though it's no biggie, but 'java-environment' is actually the full JDK (Java Development Kit, and I believe it's not needed.

It's only required of you want to compile Java source code and build jars.

But this is a prepackaged distribution and according to the documentation, it only requires the Java Runtime Environment, a.k.a. JRE.

That can be provided to this package by actually declaring 'depends=(java-runtime)>=11'.

Better yet, that is also not needed. What is needed is only 'depends=(java-runtime-headless)>=11'.

Because the non-headless package just adds AWT, which is the desktop windowing toolkit, and Java Sound. These are only needed for desktop GUI applications, which Apache Karaf is not.

You can save 90 MiB of installation if you depend the headless (core) Java Runtime.
