I just upgraded from Fedora 27 to Fedora 28 and figured out that Eclipse does not start. When I launch the application, I get an error message redirecting me to <workspace>/.metadata/.log See attached log file.

Comment 1 Mat Booth 2018-05-01 15:48:47 UTC
Can you try starting Eclipse with "eclipse -clean" to forcibly clear the OSGi cache?

Comment 2 kumbarov 2018-05-01 16:27:52 UTC
Yes, launching with '-clean' argument solves the problem for me.

Comment 3 Chris Burghart 2018-05-01 22:32:12 UTC
I had the same issue on my machine after the 27->28 upgrade. Running once with '-clean' solved the problem.


Comment 4 Alexander Kurtakov 2019-01-04 10:52:05 UTC
Is this still an issue for anyone ? F29?

Comment 5 Ben Cotton 2019-05-02 20:04:47 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '28'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 28 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 6 Ben Cotton 2019-05-28 23:31:32 UTC
Fedora 28 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-05-28. Fedora 28 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
