Eclipse - Dependency Issues

Failure to Launch
Early this morning I loaded up Eclipse after the latest update(Indigo). To my surprise, all my extra plugins such as ADT and C/C++ were gone. Of course I tried to install them manually again via "Help > Install New Software" and ran into "Dependency Issues". After plenty of installing and re-installing and considering going back to an older version, further Googling led me to just REMOVE all the Eclipse files INCLUDING config files:
Run these commands
sudo -i
 - login as root
apt-get autoremove eclipse
 - unistall
rm -r /usr/lib/eclipse 
 - remove all config files

apt-get install eclipse 
- reinstall
