I have the same problem. P2 director cannot upgrade and you have to remove the feature in order to install a new feature. There are also discrepancies between p2 director and Eclipse IDE updates. It's very confusing. Please help!

Is there a way to update features using the p2 director without doing an uninstall and install. I was testing this with a simple hello world feature which contained one plugin. In the IDE, this worked. I had a feature w/ 1.0.0 version and a plugin within that feature with a 1.0.0 version. I exported it and installed it. I then modified that feature w/ 1.0.1 version and a plugin with a 1.0.1 version. I exported it and was able to install it. I noticed the old feature got removed, but not the plugin. This did not work through p2 director. I get a message saying only one feature can be installed at once. Also, when I do an uninstall of a feature through the IDE, it doesn't remove the plugin. But if I do an uninstall through the p2 director, it removes the plugin. Why is the behavior between the IDE and p2 director different?
