Subject Maven 3.1.1 required now
Date Thu, 29 Oct 2015 22:56:17 GMT
Quick note: as of the current AsterixDB tip 6059af3, Maven 3.1.1 is a
requirement to build.

Unfortunately the newest version of Maven in the current Ubuntu Long-Term
Support  release (Trusty Tahir, 14.04) is 3.0.5. Linux Mint 17 is derived
from Ubuntu LTS so it also only has 3.0.5.

You can install Maven manually, of course, but if you want it handled by
your package manager, it's a little tricky. Here's what I did that worked:

1. Purge the old version of Maven.

   sudo apt-get purge maven\*

2. (optional) Remove packages that are possibly now not necessary.

   sudo apt-get --purge autoremove

3. Add the following PPA:

   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:natecarlson/maven3

4. The PPA only has packages up through Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin),
but Java packages don't care much. So:

   sudo vi /etc/apt/sources/list.d/natecarlson-maven3-trusty.list

and change "trusty" to "precise" on line 1 and 2.

5. Install Maven 3:

   sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install maven3

6. (optional) The binary in this package named "mvn3", so alias "mvn" to
that or create a symlink on your PATH or whatever.
