I answered this Install JDK 8 on Debian and answer was chosen was by the OP. What I don't understand is how I won 15 points. Usually you win 2 points if somebody accepts your answer right ?

Maybe a glitch or some other forces at work which I don't quite understand.

You get 2 points for accepting an answer to your question -- the person who wrote the answer gets 15. So in this case user567 is the one who got +2:
