“No repository found containing” Error when update Eclipse

A couple of days ago I started having issues updating my Eclipse plugins. I’d get a “No repository found containing” error for several of the repositories that it was trying to update from. Here is a quick fix:

  1. Go to Help->Software Updates, then select the Available Software tab and click the Manage Sites button
  2. Use the Export button to export the sites to a bookmarks.xml file
  3. Open the bookmarks.xml file in your favorite text editor, and add a trailing “/” to any of the site urls which are missing the “/” on the end. Save the changes.
  4. Back in the Manage Sites window within Eclipse, select all of the sites and click the Remove button
  5. Now, click Import and load in the edited bookmarks.xml file

Now try your import again, and it should work.
