Java SSL: handshake_failure when trying to install plugin #171
Sorry to bother you with yet another plugin install issue. I read http://gnuarmeclipse.github.io/blog/2016/12/02/plugins-install-issue/ and the closed issues related to plugin install but haven't managed to solve the issue.
I get the "Unable to read repository at http://gnuarmeclipse.sourceforge.net/updates/content.xml." when installing with ProvisionException and handshake_failure.
I tried both on Windows and on Linux with Eclipse Luna, Neon and Neon.2 and with JRE 8u121 and JDK 8u121. I get the error in all cases. I'm doing this from a network without a proxy or firewall, and I don't have an antivirus on Linux and disabled the default Windows Defender. I get the error regardless if I use Eclipse Marketplace or the Install new software menu.
Do you have any other suggestions on what to try?
I'll try 64 bit versions.
Yesterday another developer tried to uninstall and reinstall the plugin on a machine that had the plugin working and got the same error.
Could you please try an install? Maybe SourceForge changed their SSL setup again, maybe due to the OpenSSL security advisory of January 26, 2017.
you are right, I can no longer install from SourceForge, Eclipse fails with:
I'll investigate. in the mean time, download the archive and install it locally.
