android – SDK Location not found

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I created recently a new local repo and pulled some code to it, from our remote repository.

When i open the project, I receive a message in console:

Gradle sync failed: SDK location not found. Define location with sdk.dir in the local.properties file or with an ANDROID_HOME environment variable.
     Consult IDE log for more details

I followed the instructions here to set the environment variable (Im in a Mac) and checked my local.properties:

sdk.dir=/Users/admin/Library/Android/sdk

So, both things are settled up, and I am still getting this error. Ive searched, but no solution worked for me.

Any help? Thank you.

EDIT:

This only happens with one project. The rest of the projects works perfectly.

How to&Answers:

In Android Studio:

  1. Open your project navigator
  2. Pick the root item, right click –> Open Module Settings.
  3. In the Android SDK location field, make sure the correct path is selected (up to the sdk folder). See example below:

Answer:

I had the same issue and tried the above comments. Later on the error changed to

“Gradle sync failed: failed to find Build Tools revision 23.0.1
Consult IDE log for more details (Help | Show Log)”

It installed the revision then the gradle build completed. So try updating your SDK.

Answer:

On Linux(Ubuntu 16.04) you can set the ANDROID_HOME environment variable by editing the ~/.bashrc file, by running nano ~/.bashrc then adding the environment variable which points to the path of your Android Sdk in my case which is '/home/kbuhiire/Android/Sdk' thus the environment variable looks something like this.
export ANDROID_HOME='/home/kbuhiire/Android/Sdk' and after saving the file run source ~/.bashrc.
