I am using Eclipse Installer By Oomph & can not complete the download of Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. Every time I run the installer I get an error near the end of the installation. This is an extremely urgent concern as I need this program for my education. I am on a Macbook Pro running the newest version of macOS called Cataline 10.15.7. Java Version 8, update 261. One of my classmates has this version of Java on her mac & she was able to download Eclipse. Please see error details below.


[2020-09-28 12:44:06] An error was detected while performing the engine operation and the changes are being rolled back. See the log for details.

Help please & thank you. I am stuck & have tried multiple trouble shoot options.

I've only ever seem problems like this on Windows where virus scanners can block files being moved in the file system while the file is being scanned...

The error message says that /Users/thomasdurham/Eclipse/java-2020-09/ doesn't exist. Is that true? If you install again, does the same problem happen?

You can also just download the Java package from here:
