Description:
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
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=297993
which point to a Mac specific bug concerning corrupted profile.gz files.

The corresponding folder
~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.2.0_1543616141/p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine/profileRegistry
is empty however. Copying the 3.7 profiles doesn't work

Additional info:
* package version(s)
eclipse-4.2-1
* 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.
