I'd like to upgrade my Helios installation of Eclipse to Indigo. When I do, I get the following message:

Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.
  Software being installed: Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (epp.package.jee
  Software currently installed: Oracle GlassFish Server Tools (

So my first thought was to simply uninstall GlassFish. For the life of me, I can't figure out how and where to go to do this. I went to Help->About Eclipse...->Installation Details. The only place that it looks like I can uninstall stuff is in the "Installed Software" tab. I do not see the Oracle Glassfish package anywhere. If I go to "Feature" or "Plug-ins", I can find it just fine, but there is no option to uninstall.

So my next thought was to upgrade Glassfish. So I put the indigo repo in there, but I still get the same message when trying to update. Any ideas?
