General Failed read artifact descriptor - dowbload jar - error pom - org.alfresco
I have a serious problem that I have been facing for about 3 days. The pom.xml gives me errors on dependencies after making maven-> project; and I discovered that the problems I know occur with alfreco.
As I understand it, my project can not find the corresponding jar files because maven can not download them to .m2 / repository etc ...
So all the dependencies that have the tag "<groupId> org.alfresco </ groupId>" in the pom.xml, I get an error on that file.

Why are you still building a project against Alfresco 5.0.a? Even if you can't use the newer 5.1, 5.2 or 6.0 major releases, this was the very first (potentially unstable) release of the 5.0 line and has since been superseded by more stable releases (5.0.d was the last)...
If you write a custom Maven POM, you are of course responsible for it working yourself. You can always opt to use the Alfresco SDK for Maven, which provides a bit of a pre-configured approach helpful for getting started (not necessarily for high-end professional projects though), where you should generally not have this kind of issues.
