It seems that you are using the non-snapshot (!) version X.Y.Z.SNAPSHOT.
You need to use X.Y.Z-SNAPSHOT as Maven version, and X.Y.Z.qualifier in the Eclipse metadata files (META-INF/MANIFEST.MF, feature.xml, *.product,
…). Then, the “qualifier” is replaced by a timestamp during the build of the artifact.
It is not possible to change the qualifiers in the eclipse-repository module; see

Subject: [tycho-user] SNAPSHOT in update site is not updated
We are building an update site for the Sonar plugin and we have a dependency on another pom first artifact that is currently a SNAPSHOT. This artifact is built locally
and then the Sonar Eclipse project is built.
As a result we ended with a plugin named artifact-X.Y.Z.SNAPSHOT.jar in the update site. Once installed in Eclipse, there is no way to update it. Even if we rebuild
the artifact then rebuild Sonar Eclipse, the plugin always has the same version artifact-X.Y.Z.SNAPSHOT.jar so when doing a check for update in Eclipse it is not updated.
Is there a solution to tell Tycho to replace every .SNAPSHOT by a unique timestamp when creating the update site?
