Important Information.. Please Read
Feb 5, 2010
We have discovered that the original binary for the BlackBerry Widget SDK Beta 3 was an incorrect install file. The version number indicated on the incorrect installer was version 188.8.131.52.
If you have downloaded and installed this version of the widget SDK we highly recommend that you uninstall it and download the updated version. You will be able to identify the latest version when the installer starts and you can confirm that the version is 184.108.40.206
It appears that the Eclipse update site did in fact have the correct Beta 3 version and no action is required there.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
I'm pleased to announce that we have just released the Beta 3 of the BlackBerry Widget SDK. You can download it from the following link:
New Functionality for this Release

FYI. This is Eclipse 3.4 Ganymeade. I downloaded the installer here (http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/devbetasof
After that I tried to manually update using the update site and got that error. I get an error page when i visit the site from my browser too.
I am running Windows 7 64bit. JDK 1.6 u18 32bit

Well I was able to get the BlackBerry Web Plug-in Eclipse installed by installing as admin and I changed permissions on the MDS folder to get it to work (C:\Program Files (x86)\BlackBerry Web Plug-in Eclipse\plugins\net.rim.browser.tools.wcpc_220.127.116.11
But when I try and check the update site it still fails, so you guys should probably check that out.

As an update, I have received notice from our web team that the update site issue has now been resolved.
