Updates with Eclipse are very uncomfortable - Why? [message #75191] Wed, 19 March 2008 19:36 Go to next message

Hello NG,

First:
I'mm not a constant user of eclipse, but if I
try to "Search for updates of the currently installed features",
the Update Manager process needs a very long time. The Update
Manager holds out about >60 minutes and more (2h/3h). Why?
Please take a look at my screenshots 1-3:

Second:
If I search for new features to install, the Update Manager ends
with an error. It seems there are no more updates available, but
why is there no "normal" dialog which reports this in a "user-friendly"
way that there are no more updates?
That's always confusing to me and with this error message
I always think there is something wrong with my installation, isn't it?
Please take a look at my screenshots 4-5:

I feel your pain. A lot of work is currently going into provisioning.
The "p2" project [1] is delivering some new code that should address
these problems. The new code is expected in the M6 release and will be
part of the Eclipse Ganymede release.
