Solutions for Maven error “Failure to transfer…”


Problem #1

I am trying to set up a project using Maven (m2eclipse), but I get this error in Eclipse:

(Description Resource Path Location Type Could not calculate build plan: Failure to transfer org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:pom:2.0.2 from was cached in the local repository, resolution will not be reattempted until the update interval of central has elapsed or updates are forced. Original error: Could not transfer artifact org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:pom:2.0.2 from/to central ( No response received after 60000 ExampleProject Unknown Maven Problem


Remove all your failed downloads:

find ~/.m2  -name "*.lastUpdated" -exec grep -q "Could not transfer" {} \; -print -exec rm {} \;

For windows:

cd %userprofile%\.m2\repository
for /r %i in (*.lastUpdated) do del %i

Then rightclick on your project in eclipse and choose Maven->Update Dependencies
