Which version of the tomcat-maven-plugin did you specify? Looks like there are only the 1.0 and 1.1 versions (and an alpha and beta) in Maven Central:

Do I have to specify any other location additionally?

I removed the Spring repository location from my pom.xml and it started downloading the correct jar files from the Maven central repositories.
