After the upgrade to eclipse 4.2 there is an error, when trying to install plugins:
"Cannot complete the request. This installation has not been configured properly for Software Updates. See the error log for details"

Searching for the error message leads to, among others
which point to a Mac specific bug concerning corrupted profile.gz files.

The corresponding folder
is empty however. Copying the 3.7 profiles doesn't work

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
The error message points to a log file which I'm unable to locate.

Steps to reproduce:
"Help" -> "Install New Software" -> error message
This task depends upon

Ok, I found the error log under "Help" -> "About Eclipse SDK" -> "Installation Details" -> "Configuration" -> "View Error Log"
This reveiled eclipse is not using the profile from ~/.eclipse but the one in /usr/share/eclipse.
Here I was lacking user read permissions. Setting these solved the problem. I don't why this happened.

it's not something we control.
