My code is :

It compiles fine, but won't output.

The error message is:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: method java.lang.String.format with signature (Ljava.lang.String;[Ljava.lang.Object;) Ljava.lang.String; was not found.

My operating system is Ubontu Linux, and java version is 5.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Have you tried typing "javac -version" to make sure the version of Java being used is the same as the one you expect? It's possible an older version of Java is getting in the path first.
