Hi,

I am learning to integrate p2 update manager in my rcp application. While installing new plugins works well, the check for updates seems to not recognize when on the update site is a plugin with a higher version (for example 1.0.1 where the existing in the app is 1.0.0).

What have I to do that this works?

Thank you!

Update works on "top level IUs". If you open Help>About>Installation
Details>Installed Software, Update should be able to see changes at that
level.

It won't change a single plugin by itself that's included in a feature
that's included in a product, since the versions of the product and
feature specify the version of the plugin.
