as you can see it couldn't find maven and though couldn't run the maven goal! anybody can help?


From your snapshot it seems you haven't checked the Install automatically option which should be checked when you add Maven to Jenkins.

So check that option, install maven and try issuing the build again.

Otherwise, you may try to download the binaries yourself, drop them under some path and change the maven home path to point to latter one. The aim is to avoid the apt-get isntallation.
