Eclipse is a powerful and feature-rich IDE for Java developers, but the versions packaged with Debian and Ubuntu lag far behind the latest releases. In fact, the version shipping with Ubuntu 16.04 was released in 2012 and was discontinued quite some time ago. Despite the fact that both Ubuntu and Debian don't package and ship new versions of it anymore, Eclipse is still easily available to users of both distributions. You just have to go about getting it a different way, and the Eclipse developers have a great solution for this.
