I am trying to run a Java project about Complex numbers and until last week it worked perfectly fine and it did run. Now when I try to run it, it says 'Selection does not contain a main type', which I don't quite understand, because there is a main type.

Keep in mind that when you Run something, a Launch Configuration is created. You can look at those with Run -> Run Configurations..., so if you were able to run before, such a configuration will exist and you should be able to explicitly run it. In general JDT tries to be smart to choose an existing configuration depending on what's selected in the workbench, e.g., the active editor selection. Without seeing the state of your IDE, no one can tell you why JDT doesn't find a launch configuration for this, but if the active editor is a Java class that doesn't have a main method, you'd get the type of failure you describe...
