Hi, I just upgraded to Fedora 22, which comes with Eclipse Mars. Trying to start Eclipse, it exits and writes a long log file containing tons of errors such as

!ENTRY 4 0 2015-10-26 12:34:13.155
!MESSAGE FrameworkEvent ERROR
org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Could not resolve module: [765]


!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.eclipse 4 0 2015-10-26 12:34:33.217
!MESSAGE Unable to acquire PluginConverter service during generation for: /usr/share/eclipse/dropins/dtp-sqldevtools.

Then I updated it using

sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing update eclipse\*

and it worked fine, even if the start-up process is quite slow. Only the first time after the manual update it created another log with only errors of the second type (those complaining about PluginConverter).

Then I run

sudo dnf distro-sync --setopt=deltarpm=0

and dnf took me back to Eclipse Luna (!). When I started it, the Migration Wizard was triggered showing all the plugins.

Does anyone know what is the official version of Eclipse for Fedora 22 (32 bit)? And why all this mess?

Initially, Fedora 22 came with Eclipse Luna and then upgraded to Eclipse Mars in updates repository.

I didn't have problems like what you said, but had a few problems with recent updates. Updating to the latest version using updates-testing repo solved most of the problems for me.

Currently, the latest Eclipse updates in updates repo are broken (a number of dependencies are in updates-testing repo, so the latest Eclipse packages in updates repo won't be installed until they are also added in updates repo).

I guess that since the latest updates in fedora updates repo have broken dependencies, dnf distro-sync has decided to use Eclipse packages in Fedora main repo (skipping updates repo) and this is why you've took back to Eclipse Luna.

So, I suggest you to update Eclipse with updates-testing repository enabled. It should work fine for you.
