I copied a project that was created else where. After removing these proxy credentials:
systemProp.http.proxyPassword=your_password systemProp.http.proxyHost=host_Ip_address systemProp.http.proxyUser=your_username systemProp.http.proxyPort=port_number
in the gradle.properties, it worked like a charm.
I think it’s a network issue. My project currently fails to build unless I pass the –offline argument to gradle.
I think the S3 outage is impacting repos hosting dependencies.
./gradlew tasks --offline
Or, to make android studio run in offline mode, follow the instructions: https://stackoverflow.com/a/32173577/1043518
For me it was the firewall. Definitely, only that. After adding Android Studio to it’s whitelist everything is working like a charm.
