The extra options like
-Web Development Tools
-Services Development Tools

sometimes locks the Maven POM.xml. This makes it impossible for GIT to merge. Can IBM please fix this problem ASAP. It somehow even locks POM.xml even if that project is not using Liberty.

From the stackoverflow discussion that you provided, it was addressed that the issue could be related to the Bluemix tools. However, as Bluemix tools support was dropped in the latest release, the issue is likely to be resolved already. Please try with the latest update.

Hi, 

I have been trying to install the latest liberty tools in my photon, but I get the following error:

An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=epp.package.jee, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).

Hi, 
It seems to be more related to the network issue during your install. I had the similar issue while installing other Eclipse market place solutions and the issue was gone when I tried again with stable internet connection.
