This is what the update box showed.

'Updating Software' has encountered a problem.

An error occurred while collecting iterms to be installed

When I asked for details it gave me a list of a zillion lines like this:
An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=_home_c_eclipse_cpp-neon_eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).

There could have been a network failure.

If there was a network failure, it's not on my end. I just ran an update on Linux and it worked fine. Then I tried to update Eclipse again and I got the same error as before.

Maybe there are more clues in the Error Log?

Type Error Log in the Quick Access to open the Error Log view.

Most of today's entries in the Error Log are the same as above. I did find these four items from Friday at 2:30PM, which was like 9 hours before I tried to do the update.

Unknown Host: http://download.eclipse.org/oomph/updates/milestone/latest/compositeContent.xml

Unknown Host: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/neon/compositeContent.xml

The event details for all four of these are identical, except for the URL.

These logs entries suggest network problems, at least at that point in time. You could clear the log, try again, and see what's all in the log. I'm not sure what else to suggest. Perhaps there is some inconsistency in CDT's update sites. You might try using Windows -> Preferences -> Install/Update -> Available Software Sites and disabling the CDT one; CDT should be in the Neon repository anyway.

There might be something fishy in the links or Eclipse repository.
When used as browser URL's, only the CDT link got a XML page, the other three gave the Eclipse project 'Not found' page.

I strongly suggest closing down Eclipse as this bug (its a BUG) is still relevant 2 years on.....
It clearly shows that developers give a middle finger to it. Either because they don't have a clue what's going on, or they don't care....

Is it? You've reopened a two year old thread about an outdated release without adding any other information.

And ?/???

I see no need to be super-skilled APP tider to know that this should not have been happening.

There is no need for you to reject/oppose this....

It's true. Network failures should not happen. Networks should be perfect, and servers should never ever go down, nor ever serve up stale content.

Unfortunately reality often rears its ugly head. Anything that could possibly go wrong between you and the server (and on the server) does in fact sometimes go wrong. No doubt some gremlin with an overactive middle finger is involved; there's definitely no need to reject or oppose those gremlins.

That being said, if you have a question, try to state it in the form of a sentence that ends with a question mark. The more information you provide to help frame the context of your question the better.

However, if your basic underlying assumption is that the people who provide you the free software and the free help desire only to show you their middle finger, isn't it kind of pointless for you to post anything at all?

It seems a little to me like the annoying people who honk their horn at the bus stopped at the bus stop in front of my house because it's in their way: I know it's just a way to vent their understandable frustration. Unfortunately it does so in a way that disturbs the peace of the entire neighborhood, and unfortunately for them, that bus always stops there when there are people waiting to get on or wanting to get off, no matter how frustrating that is for people in a hurry. So I always think, please don't honk your horn in front of my house.

I was not expecting to see a response this morning to a forum post I made two years ago, but here we are. I gave up on Eclipse shortly after I made this post. It might be very wonderful, but I wanted something that was ready to go for what I was doing. Configuring it to work the way I wanted was more effort than it was worth. Between printf and the Linux debugger, and I can get where I want to go without having to immerse myself in Eclipse's arcane ways.
