MuTect install: GATK-protected: maven: Java-compile-error

I’m trying to install mutect, and as directed in the README.md, I’ve git cloned gatk-protected and tried to do ‘mvn -Ddisable.queue install’. But I get the following issue. I’ve java 1.7 and maven 3.3.3.

I followed the readme file present here. Could anyone please help in resolving the issue?

Answer

The README.md for mutect instructs to git reset --hard 3.1 in the gatk-protected folder. I undid this action, which, my guess is, resulted in the use of the latest GATK-protected version. So, after I undid that reset command using git reflog, the procedure resumed and the mutect jar file was also successfully built.
