intellij-14maven-3

I'm trying to import the Maven projects from IntelliJ button (the one with the arrows in circle), but I get the following message "Unable to import maven project. See logs for details", as shown in the following picture

If I go into the log, I see:

I'm using Maven 3.3.3 and JDK 1.7.0_71 on a 64bit Ubuntu machine.

Strange thing, is that I can use Maven by command line. Any idea?

Best Solution

Below one worked for me ;

Go to File > Settings > Build,Execution,Deployment> Build Tools > Maven > Importing .

Change VM options for importer to -Didea.maven3.use.compat.resolver
