Android ADT 23 Update – Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

First, ADT update errors are frequently asked but I have tried to do everything mentioned in those other Question-threads but no success (with https and without, download too).

This is what I got when trying to update:

Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.

How can I solve this?

How to solve:

I was facing the same issue and resolved it by uninstalling the previous version of ADT completely and then installing the new version.

Try it out.


It works for me 🙂

If for some reason you installed an ADT preview and need to revert back to the current stable, you can’t use the dialog to install “new” software since what you want is actually an older one. Instead do this:

  • Open Help > About Eclipse… on Windows or Linux. On Mac, use the
    app’s menu > About…
  • Click the “Installation Details” button.
  • Select the “Installation History” tab.
  • Select one of the previous configurations.
  • Click the “Revert” button at the bottom.

I downloaded Eclipse Luna without ADT. This is important.

Depending on where you saved your workspace and what version of eclipse you were using before a pop up might come up saying that it will migrate to Eclipse Luna etc2. I chose to migrate to Luna.

I then went to help -> install new software and added the ADT plugin via

I have run my app I was developing on ADT 22.xx and it runs fine on the emulator and my own nexus 5.

I hope this helps…..


I was using Eclipse Luna. I downloaded SDK 23. Then when I read ADT 23 released I was excited. I downloaded it too. But I relised it has many errors. I couldn’t do anything with eclipse. I thought the other one, ADT 22 was good.

So I started to use Kepler again. I install SDK 22.6.2 and ADT 22.6.2 too. I am happy now. I have no errors anymore.

If it is running, do not touch it!


You have to Update your Google ADT to the Latest Version!

In Eclipse go to Help

Install New Software —> Add

inside Add Repository write:

Double click in the opening Box the 1 entry.

Follow the Eclipse instructions.

After loading some time you will get the newest Developer Tools and NDK Plugins

Repeat this for 2 times
