Hello everybody,

In Eclipse IDE, when I try to install new software from Indigo repository, I only get a few available items. There are no categorized items available, if I select the "group items by category" option.

In > Help > Install New Software...

Available software are :

Eclipse for RCP and RAP Developers
Eclipse for Scout Developers
Eclipse for Testers
Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers
Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Linux Developers
Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers
Eclipse IDE for Java Developers
Eclipse IDE for Javascript Developers
Eclipse IDE for Parallel Application Developers
Eclipse Modeling Tools
EPP CPP Feature
EPP Java Package
EPP Linux Tools Feature
EPP Modeling Feature
EPP Parallel Feature
EPP Reporting Feature
EPP Scout Feature
EPP Testing Feature
Javascript IDE Feature

With options :

- Show only the latest versions of available software
- Contact all update sites during install to find required software
- Hide items that are already installed

Here follow some details:

- OS : Windows 7 x64 professional SP1
- Eclipse : eclipse-jee-indigo-win32-x86_64
- Java : jdk-6u26-windows-x64
- URL of indigo repository :
- Connection to network using my company proxy

I have tried to :

- reload repository
- update my system and eclipse platform
- re-install Eclipse
- use a 32 bit eclipse/VM version
- also checked my network connection

I have attached a screen capture showing the problem.

Any help will be appreciated.

I have a similar problem with different results. In my case, I have installed Eclipse 3.7 JavaEE edition and I'm not able to connect to any of the update sites for Indigo. I thought it was my McAfee firewall but I have added Full access to both java.exe and eclipse.exe. I also tried disabling to firewall altogether. Also, the Eclipse Marketplace seems to load and I think that accesses the internet. When I try to access the update sites directly from my browser, it loads the appropriate information page.

Basically, when I click on a site from the drop down, it sits at "Fetching children of Indigo". I get a warning in my error log that says "Server returned lastModified <= 0 for compositeContent.jar" for the Mylyn one.

Any ideas?
