Upgraded to 12.10, can't install Eclipse

  Looks like Eclipse packages are broken, but also Ubuntu Software
Center has a bug, because it does not report the issue meaningfully.

  I tried "sudo apt-get install eclipse" and it said eclipse-pde and
eclipse-jdt were required but "not going to be installed". I kept
adding packages to the list until the following command succeeded:

sudo apt-get install eclipse eclipse-jdt eclipse-pde eclipse-platform
eclipse-platform-data libtomcat7-java

  I don't understand why Tomcat 7 is a requirement for Eclipse?

     Take care
