Anyone else experience this and know why it happens or how I can fix/workaround it?

You do not have permission to write to your eclipse directory, e.g. the owner and group of your eclipse directory may be root, or some numeric owner/group. Either change the owner of the eclipse directory and all of its contents to the user who is logged in while doing the Eclipse update, or more preferably, change the group of eclipse/subdirs and make yourself a member of that group. Then go back and do the Eclipse update/install for WTP.
