Maven - unable to update index for central

Recently I wanted to refresh my maven repos, but the following problem have occured

Unable to update index for central|http://repo1.maven.org/maven2

If you experience this problem, try to delete contents in the following directory:

 workspace_location\.metadata\.plugins\org.maven.ide.eclipse\nexus

Before directory deletion ensure that your Eclipse instance is not running.

After you have deleted directory go to the Window->Preferences->Maven and enable checkbox named "Download repository index updates on startup".

Press OK and restart Eclipse.

Next time you start Eclipse Nexus indexer will update repository indexes.
