Few Things to Try
Though I'm currently trying to reproduce the issues using DTP 1.6.1, EMF 3.4.1, GEF 3.4.1, and Eclipse 3.4.1 so I can upgrade via the update manager to DTP 1.6.2, here are a few things to try:
- Delete org.eclipse.datatools.* features (from the eclipse/features directory) and plugins (from the eclipse/plugins directory).
- Install from the 1.6.2 zip.
- Now try re-running the update to see if that clears up the issues.
