Trying to install the subversive (or subclipse) plug-in gives an error. Using the Marketplace, the system says that the solution is not available. Using the "Install New Software" => Collaboration Tools gives the following error:

Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software currently installed: Shared profile 1.0.0.1323230625724 (SharedProfile_epp.package.java 1.0.0.1323230625724)
Missing requirement: Shared profile 1.0.0.1323230625724 (SharedProfile_epp.package.java 1.0.0.1323230625724) requires 'org.maven.ide.eclipse [1.0.100.20110804-1717]' but it could not be found

Then I try to install that designated maven package, but the update manager says there is nothing to update.

Then I look at the installed software list, and the maven package is already installed as a feature (actually, there are two items with the 1.0.100.20110804-1717 number: the Maven Integration for Eclipse, and the m3e logback configuration.

My Eclipse build is:
Version: Indigo Service Release 1
Build id: 20110916-0149

I am quite stuck.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

What package of Eclipse did you originally get (Eclipse IDE for Java
Developers, Eclipse Classic, etc)?

You could try opening the About Eclipse dialog, press Installation
Details button, then find the Maven feature(s) in the list; select
it/them and press the Uninstall... button. Maybe removing the maven junk
will allow the svn installation to proceed.

Please report back with our answers and the results of that experiment.

The version of Eclipse I had when I first asked for help (Eclipse IDE for Java Developers) did not have the "Uninstall" option you suggested.

I ended up deleting all references to Eclipse on my system (in the /opt, home/ric/.eclipse, usr/bin, usr/share/applications directories, etc) and reinstalling the classic version.

Since Ubuntu 11.04 only has the Galileo 3.52 version under its apt-get repository, I had been following alternative instructions for installation of Eclipse using the new version. Every web page I encountered instructed me to install Eclipse in the /opt directory and then "sudo chown root:root eclipse". This had the effect of making plugin installation erratic, because while some plugins installed correctly running from the terminal command "eclipse" (or by clicking on the desktop icon), other plugins would not install unless the program was running as "root". I think that Eclipse was looking in the root directory for its appropriate dependency listings, and was not able to find them in the root directory when attempting to install plugins, even though the program itself was showing that those features were already installed (in the /opt/eclipse directory)

After reinstalling Eclipse (for the fifth time!), I did the following command, which has since allowed all plugins to install without a hitch:

sudo chown -R ric:ric /opt/eclipse

I wonder if installing eclipse would be better in my home directory, rather than /opt. (I am the only user of my machine.)

Last week I filed a bug report (365680) because I was unable to click on the "I accept the license agreement" button in the Indigo classic version of Eclipse. Perhaps that problem is related to the program not running as "root" also? Just wondering...

Thanks for the advice. Now I can finally get programming!

Maybe too late for you, but this advice is repeated again and again from
us Eclipse "gurus:"
Never, ever, ever install Eclipse from a Linux package manager (like
apt, yum, etc). Always get it from www.eclipse.org and install yourself.
As for installing into /opt, I don't know where you read that but I've
seen people recommend installing into your home directory. Also make
certain you're using the Sun/Oracle JVM, not gcj (see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini )
