This might be a bit old but I just encountered the same problem and it turns out that on the corporate network there was a self signed root SSL certificate.

In order to overcome this problem I had to add the SSL into the JVM keystore as described here

This looks like a Java truststore issue to me. If you had overwritten anything in the JVM installation, it may be affecting your connection to Salesforce.


I have resolved this issue follow the below steps.

Go to Eclipse IDE Windows → Preferences → Network Connections and set Active Provider to Direct.

This issue is related to the Eclipse IDE Network Connections, i found this workaround from below Link
