Running Eclipse version 2019-12R CDT variant on iMac with macOS Sierra 10.12.6 has a problem installing or updating tools, features or plugging with a resultant error of "No Repository found..."

For example on installing latest update request of Git 5.4 and Java Git support 5.4, I get the following error report.

An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=_Users_maddog_Eclipse_Eclipse 2018-12R_cpp-2018-12_Eclipse.app_Contents_Eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).

On previous attempts, I have had succes by down loading the project from Eclipse Project website for a project like WindowBuilder Pro 1.9.2. Doing this did allow the update. When I tracked the flow of the install by pulling from the download site, I found it timed out and couldn't complete the install. My internet connect is 25 Mbps download. I am wondering if this could be because of blockage from my antiviral security software.

What I was wondering are the logs I can go read on install history. Maybe I can trace through there. Alternately, is there some quasi-rule that Eclipse can only grow so big and no bigger (number of installed projects??).

I do remember of earlier versions of Eclipse (Photon and before) had a problem with directory depth of pluggins (more a problem of Windows). Didn't know if I'm
still suffering from that.

Also, I checked my Eclipse.ini file saw that max Heap is 1024k. Didn't know if I should double that... Any suggestions.

More if this isn't the proper location for this topic. What Forum would such question be better located in. Let me know for the future.

What's found when updating will depend on which update sites are available and enabled in Preferences -> Install/Update -> Available Software Sites and when using Help -> Install New Software... there is the "Contact all update sites..." option that will use the enabled available software sites.

The specific things that aren't being found should be found in

Note that there were major network issues with the server on Wednesday and Thursday, after the 2019-03 release on Wednesday, that might have caused your install/update failures.

There is no rule that would prevent a huge installation, and on the Mac, there are no restrictive file length issues that would tend to cause you any problems.

I would definitely make my heap bigger that 1G if I were you. A 64 bit JVM supports much larger heap sizes than that and performance will degrade badly if you get close to the maximum heap size at runtime. In Preferences -> General you can enable Show heap status to see how much heap your IDE is currently using.

Without additional details I cannot give a different answer. In the worst case, create a new 2019-03 installation instead of updating an existing one....

This morning I updated to 2019-03 from 2018-12 and it broke my workspace so badly!
Here's my log dump.

The update process is seriously so debilitating for Eclipse. Speaking as a user for the last 7 years now, I can only say how disappointed I am... I have work to do, please fix this.
