Hi everyone.
I'm trying to update Eclipse by included update functionality but it doesn't work.
I currently have Eclipse version 2020-12 (4.18.0) installed. When Eclipse is checking for updates it discovered new versions for

  • Eclipse Platform
  • Eclipse RCP
  • WST Server Adapters
  • WST Server UI

Unfortunately, updating this components cannot perform:
Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.
  Software being installed: Eclipse Platform 4.21.0.v20210906-0842 ( 4.21.0.v20210906-0842)
  Software currently installed: Eclipse for Testers (epp.package.testing
  Only one of the following can be installed at once: 
    Ant Build Tool Core 3.5.800.v20200608-1251 (org.eclipse.ant.core 3.5.800.v20200608-1251)
    Ant Build Tool Core 3.6.100.v20210731-1643 (org.eclipse.ant.core 3.6.100.v20210731-1643)
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Eclipse for Testers (epp.package.testing
    To: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.iu; [4.18.0.v20201202-1800,4.18.0.v20201202-1800]
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Eclipse Platform 4.18.0.v20201202-1800 ( 4.18.0.v20201202-1800)
    To: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.iu; org.eclipse.ant.core [3.5.800.v20200608-1251,3.5.800.v20200608-1251]
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Eclipse Platform 4.21.0.v20210906-0842 ( 4.21.0.v20210906-0842)
    To: org.eclipse.equinox.p2.iu; org.eclipse.ant.core [3.6.100.v20210731-1643,3.6.100.v20210731-1643]

Is there any way to resolving this dependency conflicts without installing Eclipse from scratch?

It seems not, based on the way Eclipse for Testers was defined and that you already have the final version of it (see You could
try to uninstall Eclipse for Testers from within Eclipse, but I have no idea if that'll lave you a runnable installation.
