[Android][Gradle] Build fails when downloading files from jcenter



Steps to reproduce:
1. Delete ',gradle' folder from %USERPROFILE% folder
2. Create a new project
3. Attempt to build an apk

Reproduced on: 2018.3.0b11, 2018.2.0a1, 2018.2.14f1, 2018.3.0b7, 2019,.1.0a6
Not reproducible on: 2017.4.14f1, 2018.1.9f2

A problem occurred configuring root project 'gradleOut'.
> Could not resolve all artifacts for configuration ':classpath'.
> Could not find aapt2-proto.jar (
Searched in the following locations:

Workaround: Create a custom 'mainTemplate'gradle' file and reorder 'repositories' of 'buildscript' and 'allprojects' so that 'jcenter' is not on top.
To create a custom template file go to Player Settings > Publishing Settings > Build > Custom Gradle Template

    Ran into the same problem. Everything was building fine on 2018.2.7f1 two days ago.
    Suddenly this error popped up. Workaround does not work either. It still tries to fetch the files from jcenter.
    If you follow the links in the error message they indeed return "resource not found".

    Just to make sure it does not have anything to do with plugins I created a new empty project and tried to build with an empty scene. Same error.

    For anyone needing to use cloud build with plugins in the meantime before the official fix, I got it working like this:

    Also it's quite impossible to override the template for other plugins on the Mac...

    Yeah, thats great, but the workaround doesn't work when other plugins are present and generating their own gradle files.
