Installing and upgrading plugins in Eclipse

I have had problems with “No repository found at” errors while trying to install or update eclipse plugins. Other people have had similar problems (on the andriod forums for instance).

I found that the solution was to open eclipse on a fresh workspace (just specify an empty directory for the workspace it will create the stuff it needs). Once the install/upgrade is done I can just switch back to my normal workspace and everything is as it should be. The upgrades and installs are installation-wide so the workspace change does not effect them. For some reason the stuff in my workspace was causing problems. It doesn’t make much sense really.
