Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Problem/Question about Update...

I'm not sure what your specific problem is (because I can never understand those P2 error message chains :)

But I do know that to get the Java EE Package to correctly update, it is often required to have the "packages repository" enabled in your available software sites list. Namely,

If it turns out this helps you, you might comment in bug 303273

I'm trying to update to a newer p2 in my M5 updated, Helios M4 JEE
install by pointing to an unzipped equinoxSDK build in "Install New
Software". The updater recognizes that bundles are previously installed,
and will update them instead. However, it says it cannot proceed because
there are dependency conflicts.

As I add features to try and remove conflicts, I get others. Until  I am
requesting  to  install the entire Equinox SDK over JEE M5, at which
point it appears that I cannot proceed because the JEE package depends
upon a version of eclipse.equinox.preferences.mechanism which is trying
to be replaced by equinox. I'm including a jpg of the dialog.

I am obviously doing something wrong, since I was asked to update p2 to
a later build, but cannot do so. It appears I can only update the jee
package without error, but jee does not yet contain the version of p2
that I need.

What am I missing? is there a specific p2 site (for p2, or the JEE
package) I need?
