Android Studio Suddenly started to display unable to resolve com.android.support…25.0.0 error messages and all of my java files are erroneous now?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

My project was working very fine, but until one day, when I uploaded my project to github. I don’t know if this issue is related to that but today when I compiled my android studio project, it started showing me these 4 horrible errors. I have tried most of the google results but no help!

Error:Failed to resolve: com.android.support:cardview-v7:25.0.0
Error:Failed to resolve: com.android.support:customtabs:25.0.0
Error:Failed to resolve: com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.0.0
Error:Failed to resolve: com.android.support:support-v4:25.0.0

This is the screenshot of android studio screen if it helps!

This is my app level build.gradle file:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

repositories {
    mavenLocal()
    mavenCentral()
    flatDir {
        dirs 'libs'
    }
}

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.3"
    defaultConfig {

        exclude 'META-INF/LICENSE-FIREBASE.txt'
        exclude 'META-INF/NOTICE'
    }
    productFlavors {
    }
}

    compile fileTree(include: ['*.jar'], dir: 'libs')
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
    compile 'com.android.support:design:23.1.1'
    compile 'com.firebase:firebase-client-android:2.5.0'

    compile 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:3.6.1'
    compile 'de.hdodenhof:circleimageview:1.3.0'
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1'
    // Google
    compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:9.4.0'
    // Firebase

    compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:9.4.0'
    compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-config:9.4.0'
    compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-appinvite:9.4.0'

    androidTestCompile 'com.android.support:support-annotations:23.4.0'


    compile 'com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:[4,5)'
    //facebook
}

apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'

And this is my project level build.gradle file:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        mavenLocal()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.2'
        classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.0.0'


        // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
        // in the individual module build.gradle files
    }
}

allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        mavenLocal()
    }
}

task clean(type: Delete) {
    delete rootProject.buildDir
}

Why I am starting to get these errors suddenly.
Thanks in advance!

How to solve:

Open your android SDK manager (from C:\Users\youruseraccount\AppData\Local\Android\sdk) and update following to latest versions in,

Tools section section

  1. Android SDK Tool

  2. Android SDK Platform-Tools

  3. Android SDK Build tool

Android 7.1.1 (API 25) section

  1. SDK Platform

Extras Section

  1. Android Support Repository
  2. Android Support Library

Then update your gradle file accordingly.

###

Facebook updated their SDK to use the latest support libraries. You could replace

compile 'com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:[4,5)'

with

compile 'com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:4.16.1'

if you do not want to update your android sdk just yet.

###

I had the same problem earlier today. Out of nowhere, I started having those weird error messages. Updating:

  1. Android SDK Tool
  2. Android SDK Platform-Tools
  3. Android SDK Build tool
  4. Android Support Repository

did the trick for me. Just go to Tools > Android > SDK Manager in your Android Studio then find and update them. Good luck!

###

If you try to remove facebook-sdk compile from dependencies will not show that error. So i think is facebook sdk error.

I was using ‘com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:[4,5)’ but gives error, i tried this com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:4.+ but is the same. But when i remove it app build successfully. Am i the only i came in this conclude and having the same problem ?

###

if you are using cardview with 25.0.0 version then i think your issue is with your target sdk version. Make it 25 and things should work otherwise downgrade your cardview and other libraries from 25.0.0 to 23.x.x

###

Just updating the Android support repository version to 25 did my work. Thanks to all of you for the guidance!

###

If you added the latest Facebook SDK or using + for Facebook dependency, revert to a previous version

compile ‘com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:4.16.1’
