hi all,

I have the below maven pom snippet:

        <!-- development maven repository -->


            <!-- develoment profile is used during development stage-->

            <!-- normal artifact repositories -->

            <!-- plugin repositories -->

because my server COULD NOT access internet, I configured maven to use private remote repository.
when I run 'mvn package', I got the below error:
[INFO] Scanning for projects...
[ERROR] The build could not read 1 project -> [Help 1]
[ERROR]   The project com.demo:demo:0.1-SNAPSHOT (/home/demo/git/demo/pom.xml) has 1 error
[ERROR]     Non-resolvable parent POM: Could not transfer artifact org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-parent:pom:1.4.2.RELEASE from/to ${} (${}): No connector available to access repository ${} (${}) of type default using the available factories WagonRepositoryConnectorFactory and 'parent.relativePath' points at wrong local POM @ line 8, column 13 -> [Help 2]
[ERROR] To see the full stack trace of the errors, re-run Maven with the -e switch.
[ERROR] Re-run Maven using the -X switch to enable full debug logging.
[ERROR] For more information about the errors and possible solutions, please read the following articles:
[ERROR] [Help 1]
[ERROR] [Help 2]

could somebody point me in the right direction???
thanks a lot in advance.
