Play update fails to download scala-library;2.10.2!scala-library.jar


Suddenly our Play! app fails to build. The play update step fails to download the package org.scala-lang#scala-library;2.10.2!scala-library.jar.

I tried to clean ivy2/cache and run play update locally and it works without problems.

I also tried rebuilding the project with ssh access and clean the ivy cache there and run play update manually. It worked as well, however the output from the update command was very short; in fact it only downloaded the package which the build fails to fetch. Afterwards I triggered a rebuild which also failed.

Any idea to what’s going on?

I fixed this by overriding the dependencies step with activator update (instead of play update which seems to be default).
