I am not able to install AEM developer tool plugin for eclipse with its latest update. Getting the below error

Unable to read repository at jar:file:/D:/Dev_Tools/com.adobe.granite.ide.p2update-1.0.4.zip!/content.xml.
Unable to read repository at jar:file:/D:/Dev_Tools/com.adobe.granite.ide.p2update-1.0.4.zip!/content.xml.
error in opening zip file

Anyone facing the same issue ?? tried with downloading the tool and using archive but of no help.

I find the Eclipse plug-in to be hit and miss.

I wrote a community article that uses vault to sync the code with Eclipse and the JCR:

https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/creating-aem-project-using-eclipse.html

In the article - it states:

There are third-party plug-ins that you can use so you can run vlt from within Eclipse. However, its important to understand how to use vault to check in and check out code without using plug-ins and using the command line tool. Once you understand how to perform these tasks from the command line, you can use a plug-in if you prefer. Or you can continue using the command line. See AEM Developer Tools for Eclipse. 

This works well - but you are manually using vlt.
