Ubuntu's packaged version is 3.8, from 2012. 3.8 will not run with a JRE from this year, or even the last few years. Get
an updated build from https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages .

Well ... I was a little quick to say that everything is in order.
Probably I was mistaken when installing. The eclipse is installed in /root/eclipse/cpp-2020-09/ folder.
When I try to launch it Ubuntu tells that Command 'eclipse' not found.
So for lunch it, I have to change to root account, go to the /root/eclipse/cpp-2020-09/ and launch eclipse from there.
Does exist a workaround allowing to launch eclipse from user account and from my home folder.
Thanks.

How/why is it installed under /root if you wanted to run it as a non-superuser?
