Worklight Studio Upgrade Fails
When you upgrade Worklight Studio using P2 (Eclipse upgrade) from version 18.104.22.168 or earlier to a new version by using Help -> Install New Software, a failure results.
An error will be presented similar to the following example:
Your original request has been modified.
"IBM Dojo Mobile Tools" is already installed, so an update will be performed instead.
"IBM Worklight Studio" is already installed, so an update will be performed instead.
Software being installed: IBM Worklight Studio 5.0.5001.v20121217_1857 (com.ibm.imp.tools.feature.feature.group 5.0.5001.v20121217_1857)

Only one of the following can be installed at once:

A change was made after IBM Worklight 22.214.171.124 that results in the Rich Page Editor no longer being an optionally installed component. Rather, it is installed as part of the base components. This change had an effect on how an Eclipse update is applied.
Resolving the problem
When you imply the upgrade, complete the following steps:
- Start the Eclipse workbench.
- Open the Window menu and click Preferences.
- In the left panel, click Install/Update, which will expand the options below it.
- Click Available Software Sites.
- Click Add.
- In the Add Site window enter a value in the Name field such as "IBM Worklight Update".
- Click Archive, navigate to the fix pack archive, and click Open.
Back in the Add Repository window, the Location field should now be filled in.
- Click OK to exit the Preferences window.
- Open the Help menu and click Check for Updates.
- In the Available Updates window, select the items you want to install or update.
