Error on default project setup: The desired archetype does not exist

I am getting an error when trying to build a fresh CMS project following the steps in the documentation

mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.4:generate \
-DarchetypeRepository= \
-DarchetypeGroupId=org.onehippo.cms7 \
-DarchetypeArtifactId=hippo-project-archetype \

I see this previous topic, and I tried clearing my .m2 directory with no effect. When I try to view the hosted files in a browser, I get a 402 “Payment Required” screen.

Is there some change or problem regarding the Bloomreach maven repositories?

Hello @Patrick_McInerney ,

Thanks for reporting this.

Indeed we are facing a licensing issue with the Nexus (Maven) Repository since this morning. We are working to resolve this as soon as possible.
