Can't seem to download tools.deps - "refresh" does not populate the drop down on tools.deps settings page.

I created an empty Clojure project using deps but on loading of the project I get the error:

     11:37 AM Cannot execute, please download tools.deps in Settings: Cannot execute, please download tools.deps in Settings

I go into settings to obtain the most recent version of tools.deps, but unfortunately the drop down from which to select the version of tools.deps to download never populates, even after hitting "Refresh."

I'm running on:

Hi Robert,

Yes, this is an unfortunate bug in the current Cursive versions. It's fixed in the latest EAP, which should be out in a stable release shortly.

The issue is that Cursive had some http:// URLs for Maven Central hard-coded, and Maven Central recently required (as it should) all communication to be over HTTPS. As a workaround, you can use the "Use private repo" option, set "central2" or something as the ID, and "" as the URL.
