I too get this error and When I try to install a plugin in the directory /usr/local/lib/eclipse/ from Eclipse Update manager I cant do that and I get the following error Cant update because the Eclipse can't create directory inside /usr/local/lib/eclipse/*

I had to do the following
sudo chmod 755 /usr/lib/eclipse
and I was able to do that but I am unable to figure out what the exact policy for File permissions should be so that other users may also use the plugins...
