I am new to Ubuntu. I am developer and working with maven3. I am unable to download dependencies from this site.

When I tried in Windows it was a 404 exception but when I stopped my anti-virus it was working fine. I tried the same in Ubuntu but still no luck.

I have tried running sudo ufw disable but still no luck.

Please help me in solving this.

Can you post the output of sudo ufw status? – Devendra D. Chavan Feb 23 '13 at 6:54
And have you made any changes to your firewall settings? – user25656 Feb 23 '13 at 6:56
If you think it is the firewall, try this command: sudo iptables -L It will list all rules you have. – McNisse Feb 23 '13 at 7:05
I do not think Ubuntu firewall would block you from downloading files from some website. Unless you previously changed its configuration to do that. – Sergey Feb 23 '13 at 8:06
I dont know what to do...please let me know if you need further details ..which can solve my issue...Thanks in advance... – Krish Feb 24 '13 at 4:21

If the problem is related to the firewall then you can verify it by temporarily turning off the firewall by using sudo iptables -F . Alternatively you can also try sudo service ufw stop.

Furthermore, sudo ufw status should give the status of the firewall and sudo iptables -L should list all the rules. UFW is front end for iptables.
