Maven build goals how to select

I got a Maven project, but the source code shows errors, even if it was built successfully before and never changes later, all the error are about missing jars.

So I try to build it again with Maven

Gives this dialog

But if you click the Select button, there are nothing you can select, so I just input build, if I want to build, then this should work.

[ERROR] Unknown lifecycle phase "build". You must specify a valid lifecycle phase or a goa
l in the format <plugin-prefix>:<goal> or <plugin-group-id>:<plugin-artifact-id>[:<plugin-
version>]:<goal>. Available lifecycle phases are: validate, initialize, generate-sources,

This is one of the reasons I more like Gradle, Maven is just unintuitive, but there are still many projects using Maven. I still have to learn it.

In Maven's convention, the goals should one of the phrases, they are: validate, compile, test, integration-test, verify , install, deploy. There is no phrase called build.

I tried to learn Maven before, but never get used to it. Gradle is much easier to learn. Now I exclusivly using Gradle for any new projects, only deal with Maven when the project is checkout from open source code.

So the solution is I should fill the Goal field with compile. Still, unintuitive.
