How to create a new project using apache maven 3.5.2

I just installed apache-maven-3.5.2 and oh boy creating a project seems very difficult. Specially if you are new. It seems it's not possible to create a new project according to the quick start tutorials.

xx> mvn -B archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.maven.archetypes -Dgroup -DartifactId=my-app

How to install letsencrypt ssl certificate on nginx without Unable to locate package letsencrypt error

Today, I thought of moving some of the websites to ssl. so I looked up for a guide on Google and most of them says

sudo apt-get install letsencrypt

but it ends with

E: Unable to locate package letsencrypt

So, I had to go back to the original repo to fix this problem.

git clone
cd letsencrypt
./letsencrypt-auto --help

this will show the help. If you are trying to configure to run on nginx.

 sudo ./letsencrypt-auto --nginx

and then select the website number. Make sure you do not have anything running on port 443 now.
