No, that is part of every Maven build by default. The repo is fine and I (and I assume everyone else) can reach it.

How can you run Spark if you can't build it? Are you running something else or did it succeed?


The error hints that the maven module scala-compiler can't be fetched from repo1.maven.org. Should some repositoy urls be added to the Maven's settings file?
