maven-dependency-plugin (goals “copy-dependencies”, “unpack”) is not supported by m2e

Recently While importing one Maven project into Eclipse(Juno, m2e plug-ins is already installed in Eclipse). I was getting one error in project : maven-dependency-plugin (goals “copy-dependencies”, “unpack”) is not supported by m2e

Reason: Eclipse m2e does not support execution, by copying the below code in the build tag resolve the issue.



Code :

Save the project and it will resolve the issue, if not then Right click on your project and update Maven(Maven → Update Project... ).
