This is due to broken Maven Archive plugin. So the actual jar file is somewhere broken. plexus-io 2.0.3 should fix the problem.

or you can just workaround editing /usr/lib/extfs.d/uzip

and put the following line

if ($perms eq '?rwsrwsrwt') {$perms = 'drwxr-xr-x'};

right after:

sub print_file {
        my ($perms,$zipver,$platform,$realsize,$format,$cmpsize,$comp,$year,$mon,$day,$hours,$mins,$secs,$filename) = @_;

Is this fix workaround or should be applied constantly?
