I have overridden the <central> repo in my ~/.m2/settings.xml file. For artifacts and plugins.
Yet I get this failure message:
Downloading from central: https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2/xxx/version.RELEASE.pom
[ERROR] Failed to execute goal on project artifact-metadata-aggregator: Could not resolve dependencies for project :jar:1.0-SNAPSHOT: Failed to collect dependencies at Failed to find ... in https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2 was cached in the local repository, resolution will not be reattempted until the update interval of central has elapsed or updates are forced -> [Help 1]
Failed to read artifact descriptor fo Could not find artifact xx in central (https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2) -> [Help 1]
fix: use maven 4.0 instead of 3.6
or add <mirrorOf>* instead of overriding central repo, apparently...
