Thanks, Eric, for your very complete and very informative reply! I have successfully installed the Neon release.
One of the things I had failed to notice is that the Eclipse installation directory name includes the Eclipse release, thus each Eclipse installation is self-contained within its directory. And since Eclipse stores no Windows Registry and/or ProgramData entries, it is OK to simply remove the obsolete installation directory. Which I did.
Moreover, as Nitin implied, Neon converts Mars workspaces to a new format, hence the recommendation to save Mars workspaces before upgrading. Which I did.
Thanks also for the heads up regarding the need to reinstall plugins. That prompted me to check which ones I had installed and to verify that versions were available for Neon. Which I did.
Thanks for your advise.
