Nexus stalled on startup on Scheduled Tasks action


Our nexus OSS is not starting,

Its stalling on the entries below on nexus.log

But it can reach the repos and i even can download a jar if i want to. It doesn’t seem like an connectivty issue.
It simply stall over there and doesn’t start.

Is there something to do?


If possibly too, i want to disable the proxy , but how can i do it if the nexus itself doesn’t start?

Below the part of the log which call the proxy
proxy=ProxyConfiguration{http=ProxyServerConfiguration{enabled=true, host=‘’, port=3128, authentication=null}, https=ProxyServerConfiguration{enabled=true, host=‘’, port=3128, authentication=null}, nonProxyHosts=null},

Thanks for any help

It used to work until i set an proxy on AdministrationSystemHTTP and disabled the healtcheck from all repos.

Then, i restarted the nexus app and is doesn’t start anymore.
