Maven – How to force maven update

maven

I imported my already working project on another computer and it started to download dependencies.

Apparently my internet connection crashed and now I get the following:

    >Build errors for comics; org.apache.maven.lifecycle.LifecycleExecutionException:
    Failed to execute goal on project comicsTest: Could not resolve dependencies for project comicsTest:comicsTest:war:0.0.1-SNAPSHOT:

    >Original error: Could not transfer artifact org.springframework:spring-context:jar:3.0.5.RELEASE from central (http://repo1.maven.org/maven2): No response received after 60000

How do I force maven to update?

Best Solution

mvn clean install -U

-U means force update of snapshot dependencies.

Release dependencies will be updated this way if they have never been previously successfully downloaded. ref: https://stackoverflow.com/a/29020990/32453
