    Installation problem: Update Tool Bootstrap not configured

      I installed Java EE 6 SDK on Windows. The Summary window states an "Incomplete" Overall Status and the Update Tool Bootstrap status is "Not Configured".
      As a result the update tool does not work.

      Running updatetool in the glassfish3/bin-folder from the command line does not help: "Unrecognised execption: no matching package for: pkg-toolkit-incorporation".

      I am just trying to get this to work to enable me to get a hold of the EE 6 Tutorial Component. Failing to get the Update Tool to work, would there be any other way to obtain this?

          same for me on ubuntu linux

          - installation summary states incomplete
          - running updatetool the first time produces

          Would you like to install Update Tool now (y/n):
          Proxy: Using system proxy settings.
          Install image: /opt/software/glassfish3
          Installing pkg packages.
          Unrecognized exception: no matching package for: pkg-toolkit-incorporation

          I was also trying to install the EE 6 Tutorial Component

            Hi Luc, I was able to install the update tool today. There was a server outage at Oracle over the past 2 days, I assume this was the reason; unable to contact the update servers.
            Hopefully this will sort you out as well now.

              Were you able to get this working? I'm getting the exact same results as you. I also found a post/fix #8395 at http://java.sun.com/javaee/sdk/javaee6sdkpreview_relnotes.jsp, but the manual run of the updatetool also fails with:

              Input/output error: Connection timed out: connect

              Could not download application packages. This could be because:
              - a proxy server is needed to access the internet. Please ensure that
              the system proxy server settings in your Internet Options control panel
              (under Connections:LAN Settings) are correct, or set the HTTP_PROXY
              environment variable to the full URL of the proxy server.
              - the package server is down or otherwise inaccessible or it is
              generating invalid data. Please contact the provider of the package

                I had the same issue. I found that I had previous versions of java installed. It was using Java 5 vs Java 7. I removed the previous versions and was able to run the updatetool from command line under glassfish installationas described in http://java.sun.com/javaee/sdk/javaee6sdkpreview_relnotes.jsp. I do not however see the Java 6 SEE menu item in my start menu but running update tool from command line does launch the update tool.

                Hope this helps.
