Just confirming that Run as Admin did the trick. Seems like it would be
prudent for IBM to include a little blurb on the Update dialog: "If at
first you don't succeed, try Running as Administrator."

why that error occasionally happens. I am pretty sure that the error is not
tied to the iSphere plug-in, but that it depends on how RDi has been
installed and/or what underlaying Eclipse is used.

Maybe that even the weather influences the problem. :-(

Strangely enough, I could upgrade from 2.8.9 to 2.9.0 without the need to
run as admin. From 2.9.0 to 2.9.1, however, I got this update error.

Odd...

I agree that this problem is annoying. But honestly I have no idea why
that happens for some people. I have never seen that error happening for
me. I assume that the problem depends on the location where the user
plug-ins are installed. On my office PC (no admin privileges for me), the
plug-ins are installed into "c:\Users\traddatz\.eclipse\
org.eclipse.platform_4.4.2_2106435170_win32_win32_x86_64\plugins\". That
is a folder that I certainly can write to. Maybe that the user plug-ins go
into "c:\Program Files\IBM\SDPShared\" for users who have that problem.

Thomas.

How odd, I've never seen this with any other plugins.

Dan,

That error usually happens, when you try to update a plug-in (not only
iSphere) without administrator privileges. Please start your RDi with
administrator privileges and try to update iSphere again.

The problem is described in the iSphere help on page "Install Plugin for
RDi 8.0+": http://isphere.sourceforge.net/help/

<quote>

"Make sure that you have administrator rights if you installed RDi into
c:\Program Files.
Otherwise you may encounter strange error messages such as 'No repository
found containing ...' when attempting to install the iSphere plug-in."

"Some people complained about various dependency errors, which could be
solved by deselecting all update sites, leaving only iSphere checked."

</quote>

You may also try to deselect all update sites leaving only iSphere checked.

See also the response of Samuel Hansen for ticket #19:
https://sourceforge.net/p/isphere/tickets/19/
As well as ticket #18: https://sourceforge.net/p/isphere/tickets/18/

Both problems could be solved with administrator rights.

Regards,

Thomas.
