Deleting full .m2/repository local repository solved my problem.

Or else you need to know what plugins are you using exactly with their dependencies as one of the plugin suffered a problem while downloading.

Deleting full .m2 local repository solved my problem, too.

If you don't know where it is, the locations are:

Unix/Mac OS X – ~/.m2/repository
Windows – C:\Documents and Settings\{your-username}\.m2\repository 
        ( %USERPROFILE%\.m2\repository too, as suggested by **MC Empero** )
