Tested with Maven 3.6.0

Solution

Do not use the default maven-site-plugin:3.3 plugin, upgrade it to the latest version, for example, 3.7.1

pom.xml

	<build>
        <plugins>

            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-site-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.7.1</version>
            </plugin>

            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-project-info-reports-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.0.0</version>
