I imagine many know this error - I want to update Eclipse|
Help -> Check for Updates -> Wait for scanning .. -> Next -> Finish -> Problem Occurred
I just installed the newest Eclipse CDT 2020-06 a few weeks ago, waiting for some update to appear so I could try it once again. It is a completely clean install, though with on imported workspace of the previous version. However, the same error occurs if I switch to a new, completely clean workspace. The only way for me to update is still downloading a new installer, installing a clean updated version, and importing my previous workspace - hoping that it doesn't break.
I have been stuck with this error since I first started using Eclipse over 10 years ago. I am currently on Windows 10, but over the years I was using Win 7 and older versions I don't remember, and also recent versions of Ubuntu (Linux) - even there, I get the same error.
The error was known to exist a long time ago - with some workarounds posted on stackoverflow ... the same answers/workarounds still seem to be the most up-to-date information regarding this error - and none of them have ever worked for me. Here my (clean/unchanged) update sites from my few-week-old CDT 2020-06 install:
* Removing sites and readding does nothing, the same error occurs
* Adding a trailing "/" does not help, instead, Eclipse removes the site from the list by itself - the same error occurs
* Unchecking "Contact all update sites during install to find required software" in "Install New Software..." does nothing, the same error occurs
I must be doing something wrong .. an essential feature like updating surely cannot be bugged for over 10 years. Is there really no fix after such a long time?
