Try just doing:

yum upgrade maven2 


yum update maven2

All you have to do is specify the package name along with the yum command. It will then only update the one package instead of everything system wide.

This used to work for me last week

I basically need to install maven2 along with all its dependencies

So I follow the suggestions at

Now at the yum update step, I have started seeing lots of HTTP Error 404.
Have some of the repos moved?

I know a solution is yum clean all and then do yum update but then that also updates firefox and xulrunner for me which screws up product I use.

Please tell me a way out. I dont want to do firefox/xulrunner upgrade, but just maven2 installation as suggested on the page
