I am running into the issue of trying to download Mars or Luna. It won't let me download them anymore and I was wondering if this means that they won't be available to download again?

Mars is, at best, over 5 years old at this point. Luna is even older. You really shouldn't be using it any more.
You can find older releases using archive.eclipse.org, but please use the current, supported, release instead.

While I agree with Nitin, I'm curious about the download issue. Can you elaborate?

Someone else complained a while back in a similar way, but this page has all the older builds:

https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/release

And even if it's just downloads for the Eclipse project's builds, those are all available as well here:

http://archive.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/

So, every time that you go to try and download (even from the archive) you get an error that is similar to not able to find the port- or it won't automatically download. There is an option to click download here, but it still doesn't do anything.

I hope that helped.

Which specific link did you try? I tried this one and that works:

https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/mars/2/eclipse-jee-mars-2-win32-x86_64.zip

This one too:

https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/luna/SR2/eclipse-java-luna-SR2-win32-x86_64.zip

But the above one only works in FireFox not in Chrome. Strange. Which browser are you using?

Looking directly at what's on the servers, I see that the packages neon and newer are physically on the download server:

https://download.eclipse.org/justj/?file=technology/epp/downloads/release

While both the newer and older packages are physically on the archive server:

https://archive.eclipse.org/justj/?file=technology/epp/downloads/release

From these pages you can try to download the file directly from the Eclipse server (using the link on the file name), or from a mirror (using the download symbol).

Both links work for me in Chrome.

Maybe because you are closer to the actual servers.

Here is what Chrome says happens on the network:

index.php/fa/40333/0/

I have a feeling this happens specifically when there are no mirrors and the file is actually on archive.eclipse.org.
