Error updating Eclipse IDE to latest build
I am running Eclipse IDE on several machines, physical and virtual. During the past years I have not have any issue when updating to the most recent version.
Today I got an error message, when I tried to upgrade from IDE 09/2021 to IDE 06/2022 on a virtual machine running Windows 11.
I had started eclipse.exe as administrator, but apparently the updater is not able to remove the old binary and replace with a new one.
I could not find any solution but I found a workaround.
- Run eclipse
- Rename eclipse exe to eclipse.old
- Run updates
- Updates executed successfully
