Atelier "Check for updates" broken?

Here's what I get when I check for updates from my 1.0.245 on Windows:

Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
  Software being installed: Atelier IDE 1.0.255 ( 1.0.255)
  Missing requirement: Connection Manager 1.0.255 (com.intersys.eclipse.connmgr 1.0.255) requires 'bundle com.fasterxml.jackson.core.jackson-databind 0.0.0' but it could not be found
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Atelier IDE 1.0.255 ( 1.0.255)
    To: com.intersys.eclipse.connmgr [1.0.255]

By adding that repo I was able to upgrade to 1.0.255.

I guess that my original Atelier kit was built on Eclipse Mars, and that the developers recently moved up to Eclipse Neon but the upgrade mechanism didn't cope with this. Okay for a pre-release version of Atelier, but let's hope a similar thing doesn't happen once it's become a released and widely deployed tool.
