Am working in a team environment. I downloaded a project from subversion in Springtoolsuite (eclipse) and the contents are: a src folder, a target (empty folder) and a pom file. I converted this project to a maven project by right clicking and choosing configure > convert to Maven project. I observed that while running a mvn install, the dependency in the pom file gets downloaded to the local directory except two dependencies that are in a remote repo. I have access to this repo and have configured this in the server and repository segment respectively in settings.xml. But still the two dependency could not be downloaded. Putting the remote repository settings directly on the pom forces those dependency to be downloaded, however other important repo are not downloaded. Not sure what is the problem here. Any tips ?
