    this is my pom.xml
    =====================

    <!– lookup parent from repository –>
    ../my-parent

    i Am getting below error.
    ===================

    Project build error: Non-resolvable parent POM for com.danish:bike:0.0.1-SNAPSHOT: Could not transfer artifact org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-parent:pom:2.1.9.RELEASE from/to central (https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2): Unrecognized Windows Sockets error: 10106: create and ‘parent.relativePath’ points at wrong local POM

    I performed steps to resolve this issue but could not do–

    Open folder by running this text (without Quotes) in Search Explorer of Window “%USERPROFILE%.m2”.
    After running above command, “m2” folder of maven will open. Now search for file (without Quotes) “*.lastUpdated”.
    In this step, delete all the files found by running Step 2.
    Now go to Eclipse project and select “Maven | Update Dependency” or “Maven | Update Project”.
