Eclipse is way messed up please help.

So I was running updates while working on a project in eclipse. I should have looked but I didn't and eclipse was being updated as well. Then eclipse started acting very glitchy so I reinstalled it. I went then to reinstall the DDMS and android developer tools but eclipse said they were already installed. Cool so I went to make a new android project but my only options were the project templates that come with eclipse. So I uninstalled and reinstalled the DDMS and Developer tools but this did not help either. I am very lost if any one can help me I am completely out of ideas. Thank you.

This is one of the reasons why I don't let eclipse install any updates - it usually breaks more things than it fixes.

When you reinstalled eclipse, did you simply overwrite the existing eclipse? Or did you wipe the directory and start from scratch?

Also, you might have to wipe out the ~/.android directory - I think that directory keeps track of SDK stuff.

Did you just do an Ubuntu update to maverick?

That led me to the same problem and this fixed it: http://sonalsantan.blogspot.com/2010/10/eclipse-adt-plugin-on-ubuntu-1010-after.html

It appears that you use the Eclipse installation available with the OS. I never ever do that for softwares like Eclipse or even Java. I find it way more easier to manage these installations (and their configurations) if I just download and install (which for Eclipse is just unzipping a .zip file) them from their individual sites.
