Unable to build my project with Intellij

Update 2021-05-12 - Updated Intellij to latest version 2021.1.1 and it looks like this problem is solved. I also had problems using log in static block and it’s also fixed. Today I had some serious problems with my Intellij installation. It all started after updating to the current latest patch 2020.3.2 and I could no longer build my project inside Intellij. I had no problem building it from the command line with maven but in the ide, it refused to build.

What I didn’t know was that Apple will not update Bash, because the latest version is licensed under GPLv3, which Apple cannot use.
