When attempting to run an update within Eclipse, I received a list of 400+ "No repository found containing:" messages. When I scrolled through the error log, the root cause was that, during the actual update process, Eclipse was unable to resolve the hostnames for any of the repositories. I am able to open Chrome and browse to the repos, but Eclipse is not able to resolve them.

The same thing happens when I run the Oomph installer.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Just curious -- how do you know it's related to name resolution?

Yes, I doubt it's a name resolution problem as is host-name resolution. If the installer got this far it found all the content metadata for the repositories, and got as far as finding and trying to download the artifacts and that's the part that failed. I would expect such a failure is a temporary network/server problem that goes away if you try it again.
