VM crash missing main class

Job keeps failing do to Error: Could not find or load main class org.apache.maven.surefire.booter.ForkedBooter causing Execution default-test of goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-surefire-plugin:2.14:test failed: The forked VM terminated without saying properly goodbye. VM crash or System.exit called ?

I have already changed the cache version to see if it was a bad cache and I got the same failure. The image we are using is circleci/openjdk:8-jdk. This is happening on two different projects using the same image. Was not a problem until recently nothing changed with the dependencies. Anyone else ever run into this issue? Thanks!

This sounds like a duplicate of this issue, reported earlier:
