Looks like it is trying to load a plugin as a project instead of as a
plugin. I don't know how it happened, but it should be corrected if
you rm -rf /home/maven/.maven/cache. Check that there isn't any
additional bad files in ~/.maven/plugins or $MAVEN_HOME/plugins too.

 because the directory "plugin-parent" does not even exist.
