i also cant install extensions. last week i installed (grails update, grails support and groovy eclipse plugin.
today i set up a new computer and i want to install those but "Grails Support" doesnt work:
i checked it in the extensions tab and click on install. then the pop up comes but nothing happens. when i click on details there is just standing Installing Software. but nothing happens. i am waiting now 30 minutes. and a tried it the third time.
Hello, I have the same problem: installed STS 2.9 in my user-repository ( under WIN7) and wanted to include the extensions :
I get always "timeout"..
Also when I add the link above in the "Available Software Sites" I get after a very long time
The URLs that you mention don't exist and should return quickly in a way that the Eclipse/STS update/install mechanism knows where to look instead of waiting for a connection timeout. This usually indicates network/firewall configuration issues, so maybe you are behind a corporate firewall or something similar which is configured in a certain way and causes trouble in this case. Just guessing because what was the problem of other people reporting the same symptoms.
I would recommend to either check the network/firewall configuration or download the archived versions of the update sites (available from the STS download site) and install the support from that archived zip file. In case you want to install Groovy-Eclipse at the same time, you would need to download that archived update site as well and install Groovy-Eclipse from that site.
I am installing in windows 7 x64. I used the .exe file to install. I am getting
about 1/2 of the way through the input that I expect in the Extension tab
(retrieving listing.....) the line only progresses about 1/2 way to the end
part of the Dashboard. I want to see " Grails, Gradle Support, Grails Support,
Groovy Eclipse, and the rest, but they never come up. All I get is:
"Failed to discover all connectors. See 'Details' for more information."
Unfortunately I did not ask for information at this point or it was not offered.
I am trying to complete this. I have this up under Fedora and I have
eclipse already on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (but I want to get SpringSource
on MAC as well. I am working to convert a C++ program to Java and I
need to learn Java. This looks like a good sandbox to play in. Any Help for
a newbie would be greatly appreciated!

Reason: to add (retrieving listing....)
Do you know what Java version STS is trying to use? You can check the -vm parameter in the STS.ini file located in the root directory of where you installed it. That's the first thing I'd check given the issues I had.
