Error:Failed to open zip file. Gradle's dependency cache may be corrupt

The Solution to Error:Failed to open zip file. Gradle's dependency cache may be corrupt is


Repair Gradle Installation

This usually happens when something goes wrong in Android Studio's first launch (eg. system crash, connection loss or whatever).

To resolve this issue close Android Studio and delete the following directory's content, necessary files will be downloaded on IDE's next launch.

macOS: ~/.gradle/wrapper/dists

Linux: ~/.gradle/wrapper/dists

Windows: C:\Users\your-username\.gradle\wrapper\dists

While downloading Gradle manually works, I recommend letting Android Studio itself to do it.
