Kris,
I can run it as user; however the update website and plugin sites are not populated in the drop-down box. That is not a problem, I can load them manually. I still had the same problem when updating the SDK though. What can I do to help? Point me in a direction.

After the update was complete Eclipse would not restart. Launched Eclipse as root from the command line and got the same error message:

However when I performed an update (for eclipse) the binary file was removed from the /usr/pbi/eclipse-amd64/lib/eclipse directory. When I launch from the command line I get this message (of course):
