I am getting following error when installing Android Studio:

"the following sdk components were not installed: android support repository"

I am running Mac OS X El Capitan.



I tried it a couple of times over past couple of days thinking that it might be my internet connection issue. Also tried re-installing the Android studio.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.

Is there enough free space on your hard drive? The installer can not unzip allready downloaded repo.

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I have around 80GB of free space.

You can try this:
Go to My tools/ and run:

android update sdk -u

The studio will pull all necessary SDK components from the server.

I am not having a console to run the command under tools:


Maybe I should look into some other place to run the command?

Open SDK manager, click "SDK Tools" tab and check components which was not installed. Search SDK manager in studio menu.

If you don't need auto head emulator or Google Play Services you can skip them. Other components can be required for usual tasks.
