Currently there's nothing we can do about it. As Deej, the original maintainer, said to me via email:

I looked into this and it looks like the upstream icedtea uses a deprecated API that doesn't work on the latest JRE.

The options are downgrade your JRE, wait until icedtea is fixed, or switch to the plain JOSM package.

I did the last of these. 😐 Hopefully the second one happens soon.

Don't start anymore:

The sha256 of josm.jnlp is not correct anymore.

This package is failing to build as trunk/images/logo.png no longer exists:

This package provides always up-to-date JOSM package - great option!
