Android Build fails when the latest Android SDK Tools 25.3.1 version is used



How to reproduce:
1. Update Android SDK Tools to 25.3.1
- In Mac open Android Studio -> Check for updates and update Android Studio version (might be not necessary)
- In Android Studio -> Preferences -> Appearance & Behavior -> System Settings -> Android SDK -> SDK Tools
2. Create a new Unity project
3. Build and run on Android device
Result: Build fails "CommandInvokationFailure: Unable to list target platforms. Please make sure the android sdk path is correct. See the Console for more details. ..."

Reproducible: 5.5.2p2, 5.6.0b11, 2017.1.0a3

Note: I haven't been able to reproduce this issue on Windows machine. As after update via Android Studio, SDK Manager still doesn't see SDK Tools 25.3.1 version and uses 25.2.5

Workaround for the customers.

1) just open
2) scroll down to the bottom of that page
3) go to downloads
4) scroll down to the bottom of that page
5) find Windows "" download and unzip it
5) find MacOSX "" download and unzip it.
6) In the SDK path replace the tools folder.

Unity versions: 5.4.5p2, 5.5.3p3, 5.6.0p3, 2017.1.0b3
SDK Tools have to be updated to 26.x.x

    I started fresh with the advised "", in Unity 5.6.0p3, and I am receiving this error. This issue is not resolved.

    So is there any solution/workaround to "Error:Invalid command manifmerger", or do we have to wait for another Unity patch?

    Re: Unity 5.6.0p3 does NOT fix this issue
    I totally agree with ObsidianX. I just lost a day fighting the "Error:Invalid command manifmerger" issue until I found this thread.

    Hey everyone!
    Sorry that the tag at the top says that it is fixed in 2017.1. That's just how our system marks fixed versions.
    To be precise this issue should be fixed in 2017.1.0b3, 5.5.3p3, 5.4.5p2 when those come out, and is fixed in 5.6.0p3.

    Hope this brings some clarity : )

    Unity 5.6.0p3 does NOT fix this issue. The build still fails but this time at the "Merging Manifests" step with the following error:

    CommandInvokationFailure: Unable to merge android manifests. See the Console for more details.
    /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_101.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java -Xmx2048M"/Users/me/android-sdk/tools" -Dfile.encoding=UTF8 -jar "/Applications/Unity 5.6.0p3/PlaybackEngines/AndroidPlayer/Tools/sdktools.jar" -

    Same issue with 26.0.1 Workaround is to: Downgrade to 25.2.5, then export to Android Studio, Update to 26.0.1, then build. Export is necessary because on 25.2.5 SDK, game does not launch.
    Reason is missing "internet permission" on Manifest. It has to be added manually via Android Studio

    Thanks JGWinner for linking the old tools. I have just built a new PC and installed unity/android from scratch. Can't find the old tools anywhere - except from your link!

    For me the fix isn't woking, it seems to want 26.0.0 explicitly.

    * What went wrong:
    A problem occurred configuring root project 'gradleOut'.
    > failed to find Build Tools revision 26.0.0

    Hmm, what now?
