As of now, the update sites for dependencies of the Eclipse Luna version are offline, so you cannot install the plugin. Please refer to the Eclipse Mars version for plain installation or use the Project Setup (for development).

Eclipse Mars

Give the update site a name, for example "ModelJoin Local", and click on OK to add the update site.
