I update the gradle plugin to the latest and this error occured :

export TERM="dumb"
if [ -e ./gradlew ]; then ./gradlew test;else gradle test;fi

That link 404’s, do you know that that version is on bintray? If so, can you double check the naming scheme.

I am getting this too with alpha2. Has anyone found a workaround / fix? Thank you!

I got around this by adding the google maven repository to the app build.gradle too


#6

add dependency on maven repo:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        ...
        // You need to add the following repository to download the
        // new plugin.
        maven {
          url 'https://maven.google.com'
        }
    }

    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.0.0-alpha1'
    }

}
