Hi and Welcome to LQ.
Your usage shows that your Loop Device is 99% used. I guess that's why Eclipse says no memory in the device. Presumably you need to make some room on the device.

That the output of df shows a loop-device indicates that you are not running an installed system, but a Live system. If you want to run heavy applications (like Eclipse) I would recommend to actually install Ubuntu.
