Maven vaadin-archetype-application is not working

Hi, reading I tried running

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.vaadin -DarchetypeArtifactId=vaadin-archetype-application -DarchetypeVersion=7.1.8

from both a house computer and company computer and get the follwoing error

Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.2:generate (default-cli) on project standalone-pom: The desired archetype does not exist (com.vaadin:vaadin-archetype-application:7.1.8) → [Help 1]

I also tried with version 7.1.13 and same error

what am I doing wrong?

I really have no idea what could be happening. When I give the exactly same command on my machine, it works just OK. Well, you need to fill the properties that it asks, but anyhow.

Just guessing, but maybe there’s something wrong with your Maven installation or settings? You could try googling for the error, there seems to be various cases where it may occur. It looks odd.
