The easiest and recommended method to install PyDev is to use Install New Software as shown here. I found that this method was giving this error on Eclipse 4.4.1:

An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=epp.package.cpp, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
Unable to read repository at http://pydev.org/updates/plugins/com.python.pydev.debug_3.9.0.201411111611.jar.

Thankfully, PyDev plugin can be installed manually and that is what I ended up doing:

You should be able to use PyDev now! 😊

Tried with: PyDev 3.9.0, Eclipse Luna 4.4.1 and Ubuntu 14.04
