My workspace and installation (neon.1) has been having an issue with attempting to install an update to the Buildship plugin. I've asked about this on the Gradle forum, but they're unable to recommend a solution. I've had this issue for a few weeks now. I suppose it's possible that simply reinstalling would fix this, but I'd like to be able to fix my installation, instead of just giving up and starting over.

I currently have version 1.0.18.v20160817-1550 installed.

When I check for updates, it tells me that version 1.0.21.v20161010-1640 is available (it's curious that right-clicking on the available entry and selecting "Copy" doesn't put this into my clipboard, I had to manually enter that version number here).

When I attempt to install this, I get the following:
An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=C__Users_dk068x_eclipse_java-neon_eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).

I occasionally run into errors like this with other plugins. In many of those cases, I've been able to uninstall the existing plugin and attempt to install it fresh, and that fixes this problem. This strategy isn't working for a curious reason that probably has something to do with the fact that Buildship apparently "comes with" Neon.

When I uninstall buildship and restart Eclipse, I immediately look at the "Installation Details" page and I do see that Buildship isn't there. However, if I look at the dialog again after Eclipse finishes its restart process, I see that the version 1.0.18 version has returned, even though I uninstalled it.

I then went to the "Install New Software" dialog and searched for "Buildship" in several update sites. For some reason, I have several update sites for "Neon", being the following:

I didn't manually add these, so I'm not sure exactly why they're all here.

By checking each one, I found that all of the "date-stamped" ones had a version of Buildship available. The oldest one had the 1.0.15 version, and the other two had the 1.0.18 version. I then unchecked the checkbox for all of them, and then I went to the "Installation Details" page and uninstalled Buildship again. I restarted, and after a minute, Buildship 1.0.18 reappeared in the "Installation Details" page. I then checked the update sites again, and I saw that the last "201610111000" site, was now checked again.

Not sure what I can do here.
