cannot deploy from Jenkins due to maven cannot find plugin
this is my environment. java version "1.8.0_181" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_181-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.181-b13, mixed mode)
Apache Maven 3.5.4 Nexus 2.14.8-01 Jenkins 2.136
my issue is I cannot perform a mvn clean deploy in Jenkins without it issuing error. the error:
The POM for org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-deploy-plugin:jar:2.7 is missing, no dependency information available [ERROR] Plugin org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-deploy-plugin:2.7 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: Failure to find org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-deploy-plugin:jar:2.7 in http://184.108.40.206:8082/nexus/content/groups/public was cached in the local repository, resolution will not be reattempted until the update interval of ge-ip-nexus has elapsed or updates are forced
In Nexus Maven Central, I look in Nexus repo, and under Browse Index, the maven-deploy-plugin:jar:2.7 exists, however, under browse storage, only 2.8.2 exists.
I'm not specifying or to my knowledge a specific version and wonder why doesn't it just use the maven-deploy-plugin:jar:2.8.2 ??? instead of the 2.7. and I can't find where the 2.7 is being declared. ??
thank you any suggestions on how to resolve or explain what the heck is going on would be much appreciated,
it keeps looking for maven-deploy-plugin:2.7 when 2.8.2 is available? How can I make this work? Either use 2.7 or make it use 2.8 ?
