I'm running Eclipse 2019-03 on Windows 10. Eclipse offered me some updates to EGit and some other components and I told it to proceed after agreeing to the license terms. The install failed very early on. This was a couple of days ago but I was slammed so I let it slide. Just now, I tried it again and the same thing happened. Here's a copy/paste of the error information:

An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=C__Users_Reinh_eclipse_java-2019-03_eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).

Open "Help > Install New Software... > Manage" and check if the URLs you are trying to install from use https.
For EGit this should look like for the update site for the latest release and the latest nightly build (note the use of https):

if it's using http instead of https try to change that, restart Eclipse and try to install/update again.
If this doesn't help you can try to set [1]


at the end of the -vmargs section in the eclipse.ini of your Eclipse installation. In case you
are victim of a stale Eclipse download mirror this should fix the issue. Note that it is not
recommended to keep this setting forever since this shortcuts use of the Eclipse mirrors
which may impact download performance if many users don't use mirrors. In that case
file a bug on [2] and ask the Eclipse webmaster to check the mirrors for stale data.

I have a similar problem with updating egit in Eclipse 2019-09.

I have tried some of the (many!) suggestions at StackOverflow question 6470802/what-to-do-about-eclipses-no-repository-found-containing-error-messages. (Sorry, as a newbie to, I'm not allowed to include external links in my posts so you'll have to construct your own URL if you want to read those suggestions & discussion.)

I have tried all three options on

I plan to nuke my current installation of Eclipse and try my luck with a different version.

But... just in case it helps someone to localise & repair the defect, I have attached some screenshots, my Help/About Eclipse IDE/Installation Details/Configuration, and my error log.

if you increase the window size of the installation dialog there should be more details shown about which conflicts are preventing the upgrade
