How to solve:

Edit sdkmanager file, find DEFAULT_JVM_OPTS and add --add-modules java.xml.bind argument to it.

For instance, if your sdkmanager file has

DEFAULT_JVM_OPTS='"-Dcom.android.sdklib.toolsdir=$APP_HOME"'

change it to

DEFAULT_JVM_OPTS='"-Dcom.android.sdklib.toolsdir=$APP_HOME" --add-modules java.xml.bind'
