You need to create an update site project and build that; what you
created is just a zip of your feature/plugin, but an update site has
more than just that.
Note that you'll also have to have a Feature, as update sites work based
on features, not plugins directly.
The Eclipse Help has information on doing this under the "Plug-in
Development Environment" chapter.
Hope this helps,
