eclipse workbench log

Description of problem:
If I try to install the CMake Editor plugin from the update site at the URL above, I get a strange error about "unconfiguring the items to uninstall".

Whether or not this is supposed to work, the error message is unhelpful.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Help -> Software Update
2. add the update site
3. select the CMake editor plugin
4. click the Install button
Actual results:
error dialog appears saying "An error occurred while unconfiguring the items to uninstall" (see attached log file)

Expected results:
success, or error explaining why plugin cannot be installed

I removed my $HOME/.eclipse directory, and after that it worked. Maybe there was a conflict with a previously-installed plugin.
