The updates site is not working

Hi Experts,

I am trying to download the SAPUI5 development plugin from the update site "" however when I am trying to connect to the site via the option Help --> Install New Software, I am getting the following exception.

Unable to read repository at

Unable to read repository at PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

I have checked the proxy settings and everything is fine. I am able to browse in internal browser of eclipse, but I am not able to connect to the update site and download the plugins.

Can someone please through some light on this issue?

    @Mahendran Balasubramani

    Try to update: Help menu>Check for updates

    seems a network related issue.

    Make sure you have set the correct JDK path in Env variables.

    • Hi Jitendra,

      I also downloaded from the same site and it is for windows 32 bit. My machine OS is also 32 bit.

      Initially my ini file is also in the same format as you have mentioend above. i add ed some parameter like -vm,

      since it was not with the ini file.

      Note : Even if I use the default ini file without any custom changes, i am getting the same error while trying to download the plugin.

      Anything needs to be checked agian? or anything needs to be corrected. This stops my work a lot.
