Pipelines unable to retrieve Maven plugin from central?

I got a fairly simple maven project using


plugin in build section. When compiling this project using pipeline with

mvn -B verify

I get a strange error:

[INFO] Downloading from central: https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2/org/jvnet/jaxb2/maven2/maven-jaxb2-plugin/0.13.3/maven-jaxb2-plugin-0.13.3.pom
[ERROR] Plugin org.jvnet.jaxb2.maven2:maven-jaxb2-plugin:0.13.3 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: Failed to read artifact descriptor for org.jvnet.jaxb2.maven2:maven-jaxb2-plugin:jar:0.13.3: Could not transfer artifact org.jvnet.jaxb2.maven2:maven-jaxb2-plugin:pom:0.13.3 from/to central (https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2): java.lang.RuntimeException: Unexpected error: java.security.InvalidAlgorithmParameterException: the trustAnchors parameter must be non-empty -> [Help 1]

This looks like the build server has outdated SSL root certs, but could also be something different. Compiling the same project locally on my dev machine works fine.

Here my pipeline file:

image: maven:3.5.2-jdk-9

    - step:
          - maven
        script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository.
          - mvn -B verify # -B batch mode makes Maven less verbose

Problem is with jdk-9 environment. After switching to JDK 8, it worked as expected.
