You can do the following:

1. Install eclipse in different folder than the previous version of it.
2. From the installtion folder, run the new version of eclipse as:
    ./eclipse -data <old eclipse workspace location>

You could try copying the plugins folder into your new version if they're supported by the new version (and vice versa)

you have to unfortunately.
To avoid doing it in the future create a seperate location to install your plugins.

You don't have to get rid of your old version. Many people run more than one version of Eclipse.

I've just updated successfully and simply copied my plugins folder over. You don't need to copy each plugin separately as is suggested at that link.

For optimal ways to support several versions, see
