Not reproducible for me - M2E works fine on F21. I'll need additional information to solve this problem.

1) First I need to see if you have the following packages installed and what exact versions. Please provide output of the following command:
$ rpm -q log4j log4j12 eclipse-m2e-core eclipse-platform

2) While we're at there it may be useful to check if there are no dangling symlinks. Please provide output of the following command:
$ for p in $(find /usr/share/eclipse/dropins -type l); do [[ -e "$p" ]] || echo "$p"; done

Thank you

2) Output

Comment 3 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-02-17 09:52:54 UTC
That's expected result so it doesn't help much. But I'll try to investigate that.

Comment 4 Alexander Kurtakov 2015-02-17 10:14:46 UTC
Mixing rpm and update sites installations leads to weird problems from time to time. WOuld you please try rm -fr ~/.eclipse and try again with the eclipse-m2e rpm.

Comment 5 k-hon 2015-02-17 18:18:54 UTC
it my understanding is correct, the following actions done:
$ cp -r ~/.eclipse ~/.eclipse.bck
$ rm -rf ~/.eclipse
$ sudo yum install eclipse-m2e-plexus
$ rpm -q eclipse-m2e-core
(output) eclipse-m2e-core-1.5.0-13.1.fc21.noarch

Also, please find in attachment:
- error.ui: contains error message received from eclipse GUI when clicking on [project menu]>[maven]>[update project] or any m2e actions
- log: output of command: $ eclipse -consolelog -debug -clean >& log
- tmp.diff: diff file performed before removing .eclipse (command from fedora-eclipse page)
- tmp.diff.2: diff file performed after removing .eclipse

Comment 7 k-hon 2015-03-05 07:35:41 UTC
Is there any follow up on this yet unsolved issue please?

Comment 8 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-03-09 09:32:11 UTC
No progress for now and I'm not sure how to proceed as this is not reproducible for me.

Comment 9 k-hon 2015-03-13 09:38:38 UTC
OK, what is the correct and safest way to install m2e plugin? 1) yum , 2) eclipse install new software 3) drop into eclipse plugin folder?

Comment 10 Mat Booth 2015-03-13 09:52:17 UTC
Unless the software is not actually available in any repository, I would recommend you only install software with "yum install"

(I.e. we can fix software that is distributed with Fedora much quicker than we can fixes into upstream projects.)

Comment 11 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-03-20 11:16:06 UTC
I tried reproducing this in two other ways, but no success.

1. eclipse-m2e-smoke-test: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=9278532
Result: all m2e bundles are resolved, no problems found.

2. New machine installed with Anaconda:
virt-install --name reproducer-rhbz1193146 --ram 1024 --disk size=10 --location http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Server/x86_64/os/ --extra-args ks=https://mizdebsk.fedorapeople.org/ks/reproducer-rhbz1193146
Result: m2e works

This problem is not reproducible, so closing this bug report. If you have reproducer then feel free to reopen it.

Comment 12 k-hon 2015-03-24 15:06:19 UTC
I uninstalled everything, re-installed then updated to eclipse-platform-4.4.2-2 then installed eclipse-m2e-core-1.5.0-13.1.fc21.noarch and it seems to work now!
Thank you for your time.
