A consequence of what you have told us is that any use of installation or
update within Eclipse is likely to not work / partially work. So this may
not be an EGit problem at all.

Last night, I installed Eclipse in a different location (D:\eclipse) and
then installed EGit and upgraded to the recent release (of Eclipse).  This
all worked, and continued to work when I moved D:\eclipse back to C:\Program
Files\eclipse. Which somewhat validates what you say.
