Error:Could not find common.jar (android.arch.core:common:1.1.0).
Searched in the following locations:
    https://jcenter.bintray.com/android/arch/core/common/1.1.0/common-1.1.0.jar

I’ve really no idea how to resolve it, hope you can help me!

Screenshots on how i’m creating a new project:

Build.gradle

buildscript {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.2'

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

allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
}

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

setting.gradle

include ':app'

I’ve added the gradle files because i’m thinking there is a problem there.

How to solve:

Add maven { url 'https://maven.google.com' } before jcenter() in

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url 'https://maven.google.com' }
        jcenter()
    }
}

it will work


Update :

Note : google() and maven { url 'https://maven.google.com' } are pointing to the same repo, google() is a Google’s Maven repo shortcut. You can add google() instead of maven { url 'https://maven.google.com' } IF you are using :

Gradle >= v.4.x+

Android Studio >= 3.x+

Gradle plugin for Android >= 3.x+

###

In both sections, you need to add Google repo

 repositories {
    google() 
    jcenter()
}

If you upgraded Android Studio this would be done for you
