I got the following error message when I tried to create a Maven project in eclipse. Many have posted about proxies in settings.xml file and also flush the .m2 folder forcing it to download a new one. None of this is working for me. I'm at work, with proxy settings active in the internet options.

The error message:

Could not calculate build plan: Plugin org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-resources-plugin:2.5 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: 
Failed to read artifact descriptor for org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-resources-plugin:jar:2.5

Try cleaning the local .m2/repository/ folder manually using rm -rf and then re build the project. Worked for me after trying every possible other alternative(reinstalling eclipse, pointing to the correct maven version in eclipse, proxy settings etc)
