I created and update site project, created my category, then added my feature to the category. I ran the 'Build All', and then when I opened a new UI and tried to install from the update site project, it is not showing my feature in a category.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <feature url="features/myplugin.feature_2.0.0.201302081337.jar" id="myplugin.feature" version="">
      <category name="myplugin.category"/>
   <category-def name="myplugin.category" label="My Plugins"/>

Is there another step that I need to do?

Try moving the plug-ins/features folders as well as content.jar and artifact.jar to a separate directory. Then try installing from that directory. It's possible that p2 is looking at the site.xml and generating metadata on the fly which is missing the category.

You can also examine the metadata in content.jar. It's hard to follow, but if no category IU is generated there, that would indicate a bug in either PDE UI or Equinox p2.
