RE: [p2-dev] updating a profile

Good question. I'll leave that to Helmut who's much more into the details of this.
 
Cheers,
Doug.

That sounds strange.
Even if B 1.0.0 and C 1.0.0 are not singletons they should get uninstalled along with A 1.0.0 so long as they were not explicitly installed (e.g. they were only installed to satisfy A 1.0.0's reuqirements).
The planner will remove all IUs that are not satisfying a depenency in the tree of explicitly installed IUs.

Is it possible that B and C were explicitly installed or that they are satisfying the dependencies of another IU in the installation?
