Anyone have any ideas why the version of Eclipse packaged with Ubuntu
is so old?  Is it not recommended to use the packaged version and
instead download it directly?

The version in Ubuntu 15.10 is 3.8.1 (Juno), released in 2012.  The
latest release is 4.5.1, released in June 2015.  There were two major
releases between these... ?
