This has progressively become worse over the last few weeks.
When building our React-Native mobile app the build fails due to CircleCI’s inability to download certain files from their sources.
It mainly fails with:
Could not get resource 'https://jcenter.bintray.com/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpclient/4.1.1/httpclient-4.1.1.jar'.
…but sometimes fails on other files as well.
When I try the download links it is failing on myself the files download fine. When I build the app locally it is fine.
This is highly annoying and makes CircleCI’s build check irrelevant since it can not be trusted. There are too many false negatives.
