Perfect, Except that for the alternative command I needed to uninstall original maven package using yum remove maven

@nadalizadeh you must have had a previous installation of maven. Script worked fine for me as it's written. Although it wouldn't harm the gist having a yum remove -y maven in it.


As a side note I don't think alternatives --config mvn is necessary if this is the only mvn install, also the script above sets the priority to 1 in the install line. Reason I mention it is because I want this in a Dockerfile and I can't have alternatives --config mvn asking for user input.
You could instead say alternatives --auto mvn via this man page.

The line 7 seems in correct. You have already moved apache-maven-3.3.9 to /usr/local/maven.
Probably should be
alternatives --install /usr/bin/mvn mvn /usr/local/maven/bin/mvn 1
