I am trying to import a maven project in my eclipse which i downloaded from below https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-security-saml and getting following error

The error screenshot has been attached.

Can anyone please let me know the reason and solution for this.
Just to let you know i don't have Maven installed on my machine separately. I am using Eclipse Version: Mars Release (4.5.0)
For importing i used standard steps which are as following

1.Open eclipse
2.Click File > Import
3.Type Maven in the search box under Select an import source:
Select Existing Maven Projects
4.Click Next
5.Click Browse and select the folder that is the root of the Maven project (probably contains the pom.xml file). Here i selected sample folder of my download from above link
6.Click OK
7.Under Projects: click the checkbox next to the pom.xml file
8.Click Finish
