If you look in Maven Central for that artifact (http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/cxf/apache-cxf/2.4.1/) you will see that there is no JAR file there. If you look in the *.pom file you will see that the packaging type is pom, which means that this is artifact (apache-cxf) is probably just a parent POM. Thus you should remove the apache-cxf dependency.
