Plugin manager page won't stay on to check for updates, and suddenly changes to a java update page. How can I reslove this?

I have always been able to go the plugin manager and find out if all of my plugins are current. But I when I go to do this, the page suddenly changes to a java update page. Second issue, when I do click on the java update page, it continues returning back to update.
