Hi,

I am using Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers version Mars. 1 Release (4.5.1), which I downloaded and installed last night from https://www.eclipse.org/.

However, when I am trying to install by navigating through the menu Help -> Install New Software, I am getting this error message.

An error occurred during the org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.CheckTrust phase.
session context was:(profile=_home_erick_eclipse_cpp-mars_eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.CheckTrust, operand=, action=).
Error reading signed content.
zip file is empty

However, by googling through the internet, I found that I might want to add "-Djava.util.Arrays.useLegacyMergeSort=true" to my eclipse.ini

Here is the content of my eclipse.ini
-startup
../../../.p2/pool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.100.v20150511-1540.jar
--launcher.library
../../../.p2/pool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.300.v20150602-1417
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.cpp.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.appendVmargs
-install
/home/erick/eclipse/cpp-mars/eclipse
-vm
/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin
-vmargs
-Djava.util.Arrays.useLegacyMergeSort=true
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-Xms256m
-Xmx1024m
-Doomph.update.url=http://download.eclipse.org/oomph/updates/milestone/latest
-Doomph.redirection.index.redirection=index:/->http://git.eclipse.org/c/oomph/org.eclipse.oomph.git/plain/setups/

I also tried unchecking the check box "Contact all updates sites during install to find required software" during the install, but it does not help.

Both things above do not help.

Can you provide the solution?

Hi,

I have just performed another fresh install. Of course, I removed the old Eclipse installation, first. This time, I changed from OpenJDK 7 to jre1.8.0_66 64 bit. My OS is Ubuntu Studio 14.04.

My eclipse.ini is below.

-startup
../../../.p2/pool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.100.v20150511-1540.jar
--launcher.library
../../../.p2/pool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.300.v20150602-1417
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.cpp.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.appendVmargs
-install
/home/erick/eclipse/cpp-mars/eclipse
-vm
/opt/java/64/jre1.8.0_66/bin
-vmargs
-Djava.util.Arrays.useLegacyMergeSort=true
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-Xms256m
-Xmx1024m
-Doomph.update.url=http://download.eclipse.org/oomph/updates/milestone/latest
-Doomph.redirection.index.redirection=index:/->http://git.eclipse.org/c/oomph/org.eclipse.oomph.git/plain/setups/

However, I still could not install anything through Help menu (Install New Software and Market Place Plugins). I received the exact error messages.

You need to provide the full path to the vm not just the directory that
the vm executable is in.

Try /opt/java/64/jre1.8.0_66/bin/java.

Hi,

I changed the content of my ini file to be the same as you mentioned, but it does not work yet.

-startup
../../../.p2/pool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.100.v20150511-1540.jar
--launcher.library

Is it the same message? Can you verify your download's checksums against those listed on the far right on https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-cc-developers/mars1 , and that the filesystem itself has no errors? I'm not sure which zip file it is referring to, but let's make sure the installation itself is OK.

Hi,

You gave me a great idea. I was installing Eclipse using eclipse-inst-linux64.tar.gz
Now, I have just downloaded eclipse-cpp-mars-1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

Its MD5 value on the web is 5f0bf4989075058af670866e952be044 eclipse-cpp-mars-1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

Mine is below. The values match, which are good.
$ md5sum "/home/erick/Downloads/eclipse-cpp-mars-1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz"
5f0bf4989075058af670866e952be044 /home/erick/Downloads/eclipse-cpp-mars-1-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz

Now, by navigating to Help -> Install New Software, I was able to install "Web, XML, Java EE and OSGi Enterprise Development" successfully with no error message.

Here is another problem, however.
By navigating to Help -> Eclipse Marketplace, to install "Pkg-config support for CDT Eclipse 1.0.0", this plugin would not be installed successfully. I do not know what the error message is, but it would say "Cannot perform operation. Computing alternate solutions, " and "Cannot complete the request. See the error log for details.".

Can someone help?

Okay, I have just noticed now that I have "//raw.githubusercontent/TuononenP/pkg-config.p2/master/site.xml" in my "Available Software Sites". I also see Pkg-config.

The installation went successful.
