A plugin that we are currently supporting is not working for last version of Eclipse 2020-09 (4.17.0). Can we configure this plugin not to support this specific eclipse version and prevent it from being installed for Eclipse 2020-09 (4.17.0)?

I tried changing Manifest file and set Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment to Java-SE1.8 and putting a closed range of versions in Require-Bundle modules but that does not seem to work.

I am attaching my changed Manifest file:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Bundle-ManifestVersion: 2
Bundle-Name: %pluginName
Bundle-SymbolicName: com.xxx.xxx;singleton:=true
Bundle-Version: 0.0.0
Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment: JavaSE-1.8
Bundle-Vendor: %pluginProvider
Bundle-Localization: plugin
Export-Package: com.xxx.xxx
Require-Bundle: org.eclipse.core.runtime;bundle-version="[3.15.200,3.15.200]",
org.eclipse.jface;bundle-version="[3.15.100,3.15.100]",
org.eclipse.swt;bundle-version="[3.110.0,3.110.0]",
org.eclipse.equinox.common;bundle-version="[3.10.300,3.10.300]"
Main-Class: com.xxx.xxx.MainClass
Import-Package: org.eclipse.ui

It might be more productive to solve the original problem of why it's "not working." In what way is it "not working" on the new release?

In order to make the plugin work for the new Eclipse version, we need to refactor the plugin code itself, add additional libraries and optimize the performance. Since this would take some time, we were wondering if there is way to block installation of plugin until we make the plugin work for the new version.
