Spring MVC tutorial project not building on IntelliJ

I am trying to create and run a Spring MVC beginner lesson project using IntelliJ. I imported an existing project from GitHub. But when I try to build the project, I keep getting:

Error:(3, 38) java: package org.springframework.stereotype does not exist
Error:(4, 47) java: package org.springframework.web.bind.annotation does not exist


These external dependency banks are under my local Maven repos (C: \ Users \ sudi.m2) and I can see in IntelliJ under Maven-> Repositories that the repo location is indeed there. I also tried "Invalidate Cache and restart" but it doesn't help. My M2_HOME is set correctly to C: \ apache-maven-3.2.2. If I try to run mvn install from the command line, I get:

[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If the project does not have a web.xml file (IE: java config fully supported). The war build plugin will fail unless you set the "failOnMissingWebXml" attribute to false.



Delete the local .m2 repository and reload any required jars. There may have been problems loading one of the dependencies.
