I tried to update my Android Studio and got this error. How can I fix this?
I don't have much experience with Android studio and Android app development.
I am using Android Studio 2.3 and Linux.
This worked for me as this post try: Update 2 https://stackoverflow.com/a/42735118/5133603
Solution to emulator package issue!
After digging in the repo's XML for a while I've spotted the issue.
It turns out that the "emulator" package is only in channel 3 (canary) while the "tools" package is in channel 0 (stable) but depends on "emulator". The solution is to force the manager to download the "emulator" package from channel 3:
./sdkmanager --channel=3 emulator
This is what worked for me:
- Download the command line tools, place them in the SDK folder (e.g., on mac: /Users/user/Library/Android/sdk), and then add the
binfolder to the PATH.
- Install the latest platform: in a terminal, execute
- Open Android Studio, and go to the SDK Manager (Appearance and Behavior > System Settings > Android SDK)
- Click on "Edit", and then select the sdk folder. Then "Next" > "Next" > "Finish".
I hope this works for you too.
Temporarily change update channel to Canary Channel (Settings > Appearance & Behavior > System Settings > Updates). It works for me (Windows, Android Studio 2.3) I hope, this bug will be fixed in the next version of Android Studio.
Start "Android SDK Manager" from this path:
Install all updates from this manager.
P.S. This worked for me.
My solution using Void Linux (it should fix for other distributions too):
Create a new folder named
Sdkin this exact path. Bash example:
$ mkdir $HOME/Android/Sdk
cdto this folder, and download the latest SDK command line version. Bash example:
$ curl https://dl.google.com/dl/android/studio/ide-zips/188.8.131.52/android-studio-ide-162.3764568-linux.zip
Extract the android-studio-ide-162.3764568-linux.zip. It must be this way:
Launch Android Studio, and then proceed with normal installation.
PS: If you don't have a Android folder on your $HOME, you should create it, and then make the steps 1, 2, and 3, select the
$HOME/Android/Sdk Folder in Android Studio → Configure → *SDK Manager → Edit, and proceed to step 4.
This is what worked:
- Download the command line tools and place them in the SDK folder (on mac:~/Library/Android/sdk).
- Install Android studio 2.3 (on mac: /Application/Android Studio.app)
- Add path to java in Android Studio (export PATH=/Applications/Android Studio.app/Contents/jre/jdk/Contents/Home/bin:$PATH)
- Set JAVA_HOME (export JAVA_HOME=/Applications/Android Studio.app/Contents/jre/jdk/Contents/Home)
- cd to ~/Library/Android/sdk/tools/bin and execute ./sdkmanager "platforms;android-25"
- Accept the license - this will install the android-25 platform
- Launch Android Studio, and goto the SDK Manager. The SDK Manager will now recognize the SDK path (~/Library/Android/sdk).
- Now install the rest of the tools.
This fixed it for me (on a fully-patched Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus)).
Disclaimer: I cleaned up everything beforehand:
rm -Rf ~/android-studio/ ~/.AndroidStudio2.2/ ~/.android/ ~/Android/
unzip android-studio-ide-162.3764568-linux.zip -d ~/
mkdir -p ~/Android/sdk
unzip tools_r25.2.3-linux.zip -d ~/Android/sdk
~/Android/sdk/tools/bin/sdkmanager --channel=3 emulator
- Click "Configure" in the launch window
- Select "SDK Manager" in the menu
- The list on the right shows "partially installed" for API level 25
- Click "Edit" on the right of "Android SDK Location"
- You get the warning "an existing Android SDK was detected wizard will only download missing or outdated SDK components"
- Click "Next"
- Click "Next"
- [wait while it installs]
- Click "Finish"
Just delete the directory C:/Users/%user%/AppData/Local/Android/sdk and rename the other directory in that location from sdk1 to sdk. Restart Android Studio (close projects) and an assistant will pop-up asking you to update the sdk which will be detected during that process, so a re-download won't be necessary.
