Tommy originally said "- You are forced to have a SNAPSHOT version
even if you have no use for such."
So I believe that the release plugin is failing because he doesn't
have a -SNAPSHOT in his pom.
The release plugin checks that your artifact has a -SNAPSHOT version
before it starts the workflow.
If there is no -SNAPSHOT it assumes the artifact is already released
and so stops.

As others have already said, if that is not your workflow you need to
do the stuff manually instead.
