Looks like this is more of an Eclipse error it is not able to read some files from the repositories.

Hope this will help you.


This could be a problem with stale cached repository data. Please try again after deleting the p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.repository/cache directory from your STS installation. If that doesn't help, you could also try to change the repository URL from "dist.springsource.com..." to "download.springsource.com..."

Hope this will help you
