Maven/Eclipse Horror Show

I have updated recently my Maven binaries, of course I forgot to change The "User Settings" property in Eclipse to point to the new location of the settings.xml.

Of course Eclipse silently fails to report the issue (unless you go and open the Maven tab in Preferences)

And all of a sudden nothing works and when I open my pom.xml I get this:

Project build error: Non-resolvable parent POM for org.wildfly.quickstarts:quickstart-parent:13.0.0-SNAPSHOT: Could not transfer artifact org.jboss:jboss-parent:pom:25 from/to jboss-enterprise-maven-repository ( NullPointerException and 'parent.relativePath' points at no local POM

Working with Maven and Eclipse I feel young again.... it feels like the 1985 - actually my Pascal compiler on Apple II was far more sophisticated that these modern products.
