I installed eclipse and I went to "Check for Updates." After I completed the wizard it was installing some updates but it failed:
So I go to try it as root. Now the update sites are different and it can't find any updates.
An error occurred while uninstalling
session context was:(profile=PlatformProfile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Uninstall, operand=[R]org.eclipse.platform_root 3.7.2.dist-9nF7UHagFqn9pElwWhC90gLz-soEuSGYmtSeiRH --> null, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.natives.actions.CleanupzipAction).
Backup of file /usr/lib/eclipse/.eclipseproduct failed.
File that was copied to backup could not be deleted: /usr/lib/eclipse/.eclipseproduct
Here are the sites running as root:
Here are the sites running as a normal user:It seems there are two problems here, first that updating as a normal user doesn't work and second that the list of update sites enabled by default are different for the root user and a normal user. Eclipse says it is version 3.7.2.
By the way, what is the difference between these update sites? Why isn't there just one for each version of Eclipse?
