To index downloads are disabled search results may be incomplete

1. In Eclipse, choose on Windows > Preferences, and then pick Maven in the left side.

2. Check the receptacle "Download repository index updates on startup".

Optionally, mark the receptacles Download Artifact Sourcesand Download Artifact JavaDoc.

3. Click OK. The sign won't resemble anymore.

4. Restart Eclipse.
