I got the notice that updates are available.

When I try to install them I get:

An error occurred while uninstalling
session context was:(profile=XXX_jee-2019-12_eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Uninstall, operand=[R]org.eclipse.platform.ide.executable.win32.win32.x86_64 4.21.0.I20210906-0500 --> null, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.natives.actions.CleanupzipAction).
Backup of file XXX\jee-2019-12\eclipse\eclipse.exe failed.
Can not remove : XXX\jee-2019-12\eclipse\eclipse.exe

Path informations from my PC covered wit XXX. I have the same error on another PC. At this time Eclipse is running still, so its before the restart, not very astonishing that eclipse.exe can't be removed when its running?!

It is a property of Windows. An exectable being run cannot be changed in any way.
In Unix-style systems you can change the file. The copies already open stay until closed, and the new files will be given to any new openers.

This was a regression in the previous release that is fixed in the current release:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=577701#c5

The workaround is described there. I.e., specify this in the eclipse .ini or running eclipse.exe -vm with this option:
-Djava.io.tmpdir=<drive-of-installation>:\<a-temp-folder>
After the update the problem won't happen again.
