We have a Product Configured as follows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?pde version="3.5"?>
<product name="Some IDE" uid="someide" id="" application="org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench" version="43.2.0.qualifier" useFeatures="true" includeLaunchers="true">

   <configIni use="default">

      <vmArgsMac>-XstartOnFirstThread -Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.carbon.smallFonts</vmArgsMac>

   <windowImages i16="icons/applications-engineering_16x16.png" i32="icons/applications-engineering_32x32.png" i48="icons/applications-engineering_48x48.png" i64="icons/applications-engineering_64x64.png" i128="icons/applications-engineering_128x128.png"/>

   <launcher name="eclipse">
      <win useIco="false">



      <feature id="org.eclipse.equinox.p2.user.ui"/>
      <feature id="org.eclipse.rcp"/>
      <feature id="org.eclipse.platform"/>
      <feature id="somecompany.feature" version="43.2.0.qualifier"/>
      <feature id="" version="43.2.0.qualifier"/>

      <plugin id="org.eclipse.core.runtime" autoStart="true" startLevel="4" />
      <plugin id="org.eclipse.equinox.common" autoStart="true" startLevel="2" />
      <plugin id="org.eclipse.equinox.ds" autoStart="true" startLevel="2" />
      <plugin id="org.eclipse.equinox.p2.reconciler.dropins" autoStart="true" startLevel="4" />
      <plugin id="org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator" autoStart="true" startLevel="1" />
      <plugin id="org.eclipse.update.configurator" autoStart="true" startLevel="4" />


and we use a p2 touchpoint to move the osgi.configuration.area


After pugrading from juno to luna the product behaves very strange regarding P2/Updates

- In the About dialog i there is no plus for the tree of the product (it seems to be empty thus)
- We cannot install anything into the product since it even does not find org.eclipse .core.runtime and basic stuff like that (what is definitively there)

Is this a bug? am i missing an additional configuration in the touchpoint.

(As a Workaround) It helps to
- remove the touchpoint
- add tycho created p2 repo for the product to the update sites of the product
