Maven archetypes broken?

I've been trying to run the mvn create:archetype command, but its been failing with odd error messages. I've tried three different archetypes, including the simplest/default, and I've tried on multiple boxes, some with clean installs of maven. It has worked in the past, so I'm not sure what's changed.

Can anyone help me out?

Here's some example errors:

AppFuse Archetype



Cargo Maven Archetypes


Simplest/Default archetype:
