TeamCity Cloud: Maven builds fail to download dependencies from maven central repo

Hello. Sporadically, it happens that my builds fail due to the fact that certain dependencies cannot be fetched from the Maven central repo, due to connection timeouts.

This is a double problem:

* first, these dependencies were already fetched by previous builds, but I could not figure out yet how to have the local maven repo to be reused (I tried all the three possibilities in the Maven build step with no effect, I also opened a topic on the forum with no answer)

* these dependencies are indeed present in the central repo (in this example, we are talking about commons-cli:commons-cli:jar:1.4).
