App setup fails with error

Hi, I’ve just started exploring and begun the auth0-servlet free intro course. However, I’ve run into the following error while trying to setup my app:

A problem occurred evaluating root project 'auth0-servlet'.
> Could not resolve all dependencies for configuration 'classpath'.
   > Could not resolve commons-cli:commons-cli:1.2.
     Required by:
         unspecified:unspecified:unspecified > org.akhikhl.gretty:gretty:2.0.0 > org.akhikhl.gretty:gretty-core:2.0.0
      > Could not resolve commons-cli:commons-cli:1.2.
         > Could not parse POM
            > Could not resolve org.apache.commons:commons-parent:11.
               > Could not resolve org.apache.commons:commons-parent:11.
                  > Could not get resource ''.
                     > Could not GET ''.
                        > org.apache.http.client.ClientProtocolException (no error message)

I guess this is a drawback of the site. Nothing you can do since everything is pre-setup for you for the app to run (or fail, as in this case).

Anyway, would appreciate if someone can throw a couple of pointers.


Did you get this error on our platform, or while setting it up on your local machine?

on of course.
