Disclaimer; installing from synaptic is a really bad idea imho. The version there is ancient. This method of updating successfully updated Ganymede to Galileo for me, but "apt-cache policy eclipse" still reports 3.5.1-ubuntu3. I don't really know how updating apps outside synaptic affects managed synaptic packages to be honest.

Latest version is the one linked here. Synaptic only has 3.5.1-0 ubuntu3. If you want 3.5.1-0 ubuntu7 I think you're going to need to install from the gzip.

What command are you giving to aptitude? It should always give you the latest version unless you specifically specify otherwise

comment What is the difference between bandwidth and download speed
256Kbs, small b. Yes, it's possible you can get the full 32KBs from your 256Kbs connection. This depends on factors such as server load and traffic congestion, as others have said.

You should probably accept MrStatic's answer, which is near identical, and posted 1 hour earlier.
