I have upgraded to Eclipse platform 3.7.0 on Mac OS X Lion. Ever since running this version, I am unable to use the built-in software update or plugin installation mechanisms. Every time I try I get the following error:

'Contacting Software Sites' has encountered a problem. Some sites could not be found. See the error log for more detail.

Error while reading from repository: http
Error while reading from repository: http

(update urls mangled above in order to let the post through)

Running on Mac OS X 10.7.1.

$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_26"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03-383-11A511)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02-383, mixed mode)

The error does not occur when running the previous version of Eclipse (3.6.x) in the same environment.

I know this was posted a long time ago but this post kept on coming up when I was having the exact same problem - it frustrated me for a good 6 hours as it was preventing me from installing ADT.

Finally I found the following post on stackoverflow:

All you need to do is delete /Library/Java/Extensions/log4j-1.2.15.jar

I really think this is a bug that an extension can completely break eclipse without any meaningful error reported at all. Hope this saved someone some time.
