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