you are using a very old version of the archetype plugin (3.0.1) - current version is 3.2.0. normally maven should use/update to the latest one if you do not specify it's version explicitly - this does not seem to work on your machine?

you can try to remove the path org/apache/maven/plugins/maven-archetype-plugin from your local maven repo and thus force a download of the latest version and try again.

Thanks a lot for this Information. If I delete the archetyp plugin version, 3.0.1 will be reinstalled again. So I think the might be a problem with our nexus-Installation. I will contact our Admin in this case….

Now another error raises. Is there another version conflict?

Perhaps with the used jdk 11.0.5? But if it worked with Masoud’s jdk 11.0.9 it not very likely.

Even if I download it manually

you mean it does also not work if you try to download groovy-xml:2.4.16 via dependency:get on your machine? then it looks really that you may have problem with your maven artifact repository manager - try to use maven central directly as an alternative.

if i use the latest version of maven dependency plugin i can download the artifact directly:

and i've also tried the archetype generation with openjdk 11.0.4 - it works fine as well on my machine.
