I'm work on a Linux PC running the Bunsenlabs Deuterium distribution.

I started running Eclipse Oxygen a month or two ago and things were more or less running for me. This work was in pure java. Then about 2 weeks ago, I started working on some JNI code. I installed the CDT plug-in. I never got the to point where I could debug both C and Java code in Eclipse, but I got close. I will return to that at some point in the future but the C code is working and I'm returning a pure Java environment. As soon as I started up Eclipse with Java, I started have problems with Eclipse, getting stack traces from Eclipse. The traces indicated the errors were in the Eclipse source code. I tried a number of things and I suspected that either my workspace or install had gotten corrupted.

Long story, short is that I finally decided to go back to ground zero and I removed the Eclipse installation and my workspace. I downloaded 'eclipse-inst-linux64.tar.gz' and used that to try to reinstall Eclipse. After untarring the file, I ran eclipse-inst (a few times) and each time I get the error log file that is attached.

Interestingly, the first error in the log:

41 [2018-03-22 16:35:41] Collecting 5 artifacts from
42 [2018-03-22 16:35:41] An error was detected while performing the engine operation and the changes are being rolled back. See the log for details.

56 ERROR: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine code=0 java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/w3c/dom/ElementTraversal

is very similar to the errors that I was getting in Eclipse Oxygen before I deleted the old installation. In particular, lines 41, 43 and 56 appeared when Eclipse Oxygen crashed.

I plan to report the crash of the installer and Eclipse in a bug report, but for now I'm wondering if the error that class 'org/w3c/dom/ElementTraversal' was not found is a hint to someone.

Yes, as I mentioned in it looks to my like a fundamental problem with the JDK/JRE not properly supported JAXP's XML parsing.
