Error Cannot complete the request on MAC

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I recently downloaded the Eclipse software, from the official website as a tar.gz file.  I ran the software on m MAC machine and installed it.

I was working with it without any error message. Now when I want to update the software I keep getting error messages.

I click on help – Check for updates and I get  the following error message:

Software Updates

Cannot complete the request. This installation has not been configured properly for Software Updates.

Is this error a common one? Can someone help me with the same?

The error message is usually common in performing Eclipse, it is necessary to update eclipse by its actual program. You can try to use this command in a terminal:

sudo sed -i 's/SDKProfile/PlatformProfile/' /usr/lib/eclipse/configuration/config.ini

As much as possible, make your workspace clean. You can also try to activate the classic installing by going to “Window” ; next “Preferences” ; then choose “General ” ; click “Capabilities” ; then select “Classic Updates”

Also try these other possible solutions: Go to “Help”; click “software Updates” ; then tap “Find and install” ; Select “Add remote Location ; type or paste:

Or go to :”Window”; click “preferences”; select “Available software sites” and type
