I am trying to develop a bundle in ODL Lithium. I am following its developer guide. While creating archetype

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.opendaylight.controller -DarchetypeArtifactId=opendaylight-startup-archetype -DarchetypeRepository= -DarchetypeCatalog=

I am getting following error

Have you updated ~/.m2/settings.xml for maven?

# Shortcut command for grabbing settings.xml
cp -n ~/.m2/settings.xml{,.orig} ; \wget -q -O - > ~/.m2/settings.xml

Posting as answer as comment space is not enough.

Yes, I am using the above mentioned settings.xml file. Now getting another error

Using -DarchetypeVersion=1.2.0-SNAPSHOT worked for me instead. The trick is to find the latest version of artifactId 'opendaylight-startup-archetype' from the catalog file you are using- .
