I found the solution. Apparently one of RAD's repositories is messed up.
Don't use RAD's default repositories.
First, add the desired Eclipse update site URL to RAD. In the "Install New
Software" dialog click on the Add button. For Name call it whatever you
want, I chose "Subclipse Direct 1.10.x". In the location field paste the
appropriate Eclipse update site URL from the subclipse.tigris.org Download
and Install page. Click OK.
Second, in the Work With drop down select the site you just added.
Third, you should see Subclipse and SVNKit below. Expand them and install
the projects/features you want.
Fourth, uncheck the "Contact all update sites during install to find
required software" checkbox. Doing this step without doing the first 3
steps will NOT work.
Fifth, continue the install process as normal. It won't hang up on itext
