Maven - Unable to read local copy of metadata

Hi there,
I’m getting this error when I’m compiling the solution:

Unable to get dependency information: Unable to read local copy of metadata: Cannot read metadata from '/home/bamboo/.m2/repository/org/apache/velocity/velocity/maven-metadata-AsposeJavaAPI.xml': end tag name </body> must match start tag name <hr> from line 5 (position: TEXT seen ...</center>\r\n</body>... @6:8)

See my post here: Maven Repository URL Changed

They changed the Maven repo URL. You may also need to clear Maven cache.


Maven repository URL has been changed and the new one is: We are currently in process of updating the new Maven URL in examples and in online documentation. Please update the Maven URL at your end and in case of any query update us.
