I think Joerg was right when giving this advice.

Yes, it's correct that it should work "out of the box" and it works, really. If you didn't
configure anything Maven should use it's standard 
mirror ( and the missing pom is there.

You should check if you are behind a proxy server/firewall that may block Maven. It could
be also temporary failure of mirror (however, very 
unlikely, I have not experienced such failure for months). Maven provides some info about
mirrors it tries, consider more careful reading of 
its output or paste it here so we can help you further.
