I'm wondering if you can recall and elaborate a bit on some specifics:
You started with plain Eclipse SDK 3.8.0, right? Remember the
names/source of original tar file you started with?
Did you have anything extra installed?
And then your goal was to end up with latest from 3.8.x stream, right?
The location of your "configuration log" indicates you are working with
a "shared install", such as eclipse installed in
and then any user (userid) on your system would have their own "user
data" under ~/.eclipse/...
If this sounds true, did you install that "shared" version? Using root
ID? Or, ... ?
If this is indeed a shared install, I happen to know there's a
bug/feature that the "list of software repositories" is empty for each
user, and you would have had to update that yourself, such as by adding
Any of this ring true? Do you recall those details? If so it might help
someone reproduce what you are seeing.
Such as what repo you used?
Do you recall what the "second thing" was offered to update? (I only see
one, trying the basics, "Eclipse SDK").
Any any case, You said you tried re-installing and that didn't work.
That might have been because of the existence of that
"user data" area and you'd probably have to delete that too before a
re-install would work "fresh".
Note: you should NOT have to remove any workspaces you had created,
where ever you keep those.
And probably don't have to remove
if you have one (an area for "secure storage" of passwords, etc., if
you've saved any).
