The ubuntu package still needs java-7:

dpkg: regarding /tmp/openfire_4.0.1_all.deb containing openfire, pre-dependency problem:
openfire pre-depends on openjdk-7-jre-headless | openjdk-7-jre | oracle-java7-jre
openjdk-7-jre-headless is not installed.
openjdk-7-jre is not installed.
oracle-java7-jre is not installed.

Java 7 EOL was year ago. Openfire shouldn't support outdated Java. At least 4.0 branch. That said, it should be updated to only require Java 8. I know that Windows version works with Java 8. On Ubuntu tar.gz version (bundled with Java 8) works fine. Deb package should be updated to not require Java 7.
