Should I be able to update the org.eclipse.platform feature group of an eclipse installation via p2? I initially tried this via Update Manager and got errors. That got me thinking that I probably can't pull the rug out from under the current Eclipse instance. So then I moved to the cmdline and used p2 directory along with another eclipse installation to drive the update (using -destination). But I got the same errors.

So, at this point I'm thinking this is just not possible. Wanted to get confirmation before I give up.
