How to solve:

Add this to your dependencies in build.gradle:

enter image description here

dependencies {
 implementation 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.71828'

The latest version can be found here

Make sure you are connected to the Internet. When you sync Gradle, all related files will be added to your project

Take a look at your libraries folder, the library you just added should be in there.
