Upgraded from 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS but my Eclipse is not getting launched from the launcher on the side vertical bar. Giving me this error: The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library.
Reinstalling is not fixing the issue.
Was referring to this thread but it seems there is not some easy way to get the launcher(the correct version of launcher) to get this issue fixed.
Moreover if i follow this link also why the same launcher is able to invoke eclipse when we do this from command line Vs ICON?
I am having Oracle JDK8 and using the installer to install Eclipse for Java EE Developers.
This is how my eclipse install directory looks like

This is how my eclipse.ini looks like for the launcher
-startup ../../../../root/.p2/pool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.100.v20150511-1540.jar --launcher.library ../../../../root/.p2/pool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.300.v20150602-1417 -product org.eclipse.epp.package.jee.product --launcher.defaultAction openFile -showsplash org.eclipse.platform --launcher.XXMaxPermSize 256m --launcher.defaultAction openFile --launcher.appendVmargs -install /opt/eclipse/jee-mars/eclipse -vm /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/bin -vmargs -Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7 -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -Declipse.p2.max.threads=10 -Doomph.update.url=http://download.eclipse.org/oomph/updates/milestone/latest -Doomph.redirection.index.redirection=index:/->http://git.eclipse.org/c/oomph/org.eclipse.oomph.git/plain/setups/
and this is how the eclipse.desktop looks like
