However, I am getting below error

It seems that it is not able to download the jars from maven repository.

pom.xml is as below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns=""





I am using the Maven version 3.6.1
I also did the force update to my project but no luck.
Any idea how to resolve it?

I am still getting the same issue. Can you try at your end and let me know? If you have already imported the jars for 7.1.3 then you can rename the folder named 7.1.3 in "C:\Users\your_user_name\.m2\repository\io\appium\java-client\" and try to re-import. This is just to make sure that if you are also facing the same issue then you should not lose your 7.1.3 jars
