Public bug reported:

I just installed 18.04 from today's March 10th desktop ISO in a VM with
all default settings. I proceeded to install Eclipse and build tools

    sudo apt-get install eclipse git build-essential

I then ran `eclipse` in a terminal from my home directory (launcher icon
behaves same way). I expected Eclipse to open, but instead I got a popup

    An error has occurred.  See the log file

Meanwhile, the following messages are printed on stderr:

    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=256m; support 
was removed in 8.0
    Gtk-Message: 11:31:25.572: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
    Gtk-Message: 11:31:25.619: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

The file it mentions contains:

    !SESSION Sat Mar 10 11:31:44 PST 2018 
    !ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.launcher 4 0 2018-03-10 11:31:44.078
    !MESSAGE Exception launching the Eclipse Platform:
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
        at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.invokeFramework(
        at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.basicRun(
        at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.main(

`eclipse`, `eclipse-jdt` and `eclipse-platform` are all version
3.8.1-11. There are no pending updates after an `apt-get update && apt-
get upgrade`. Installing libcanberra-gtk-module got rid of those
warnings, but the popup and error message remain.
