Uf Jso I1_Mc Y Kepler): Updating did not work for me; alternatively I only had to follow the linked steps up to them specifying use existing work space (that got my existing settings, and I didn't happen to need to update any plugins). This way, you have all your plugins by the time you load your workspace and won't have to deal with errors for missing plugins.If previous releases are anything to go by, then the answer is No.It is best to download the new release, install it, install the latest versions your favourite plugins and point Eclipse at your workspace.(Common sense says that you should take a backup of your workspace(s) and your original Eclipse installation.) This method also worked (in addition to the answer above by Duncan Jones.See the Li Clipse homepage for details on getting it.The first thing to choose before the install is a folder where you have permissions to write (otherwise, remember to install Eclipse running as an Administrator and remember to run as an Administrator whenever any plugin needs to be updated).
The overall size of the seven plug-ins is about 1 MByte.If it doesn't work, try restarting Eclipse with the -clean flag (if you're a regular user and installing with admin, make sure you call -clean logged in as admin, so that Eclipse finds out about it).If it's still not found, double check the requisites (such as the Java vm version).At that point, Eclipse should automatically download the plugin contents and present you to a dialog asking if you want to restart (to which you should say yes).After downloading the zip file: Extract the contents of the zip file in the eclipse/dropins folder and restart Eclipse.
