Install Maven 3.1.1 on Ubuntu 13.10

AppEngine requires Maven 3.1 while ubuntu 13.10 is stuck at 3.0.4

$ mvn -v
Apache Maven 3.0.4
Maven home: /usr/share/maven

'which mvn' gives '/usr/bin/mvn'
Fortunately /usr/local/bin is before in the path variable and this is where I put all the symlink I need

  • Download the latest maven from
  • I installed it here /opt/apps/apache-maven-3.1.1/bin
  • Add a symlink sudo ln -s '/mnt/ssd/apps/apache-maven-3.1.1/bin/mvn' /usr/local/bin/mvn
  • I add to start a new console to check mvn version on the command line
$ mvn -v
