Error I meet when install MuTect on a linux server

Hi, I am trying to install MuTect on a linux server. By the instruction, I did the steps:

make a new source directory (e.g. mutect-src)
mkdir mutect-src
cd mutect-src

get MuTect source
git clone

get the GATK source and set to the latest tested version
git clone
cd gatk-protected
git reset --hard 3.1

build the GATK first and install it to the local mvn repo. Once GATK publishes to a public repo this will be much simpler
mvn -Ddisable.queue install

build MuTect and run unit tests (the target jar will be in target/mutect-*.jar)
cd ../mutect
mvn verify

run integration tests, if you like

It all successes until the step:mvn verify
Here is the error message:
