Bounty: 50

My gradle seems to insist on downloading packages from what looks like a proxy address. With this command I stop all Gradle daemons, remove any Gradle configuration, and build a random project from GitHub that has no proxy settings in its gradle.properties (I tried other projects, same result):

./gradlew  --stop ;
pkill -f '.*GradleDaemon.*' ;
rm -rf ~/.gradle ;
env ;
./gradlew build

The ./gradlew build part outputs this error:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred configuring root project 'commons-app'.
> Could not resolve all artifacts for configuration ':classpath'.
   > Could not resolve com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.0.0.
     Required by:

For reference, here is the output of the first commands, with a line break between each for clarity:

What could be the problem?

I have found several similar questions, but none of their answers apply because:

  • I am using pure Gradle, so no Android Studio.
  • ~/.gradle is empty
  • I don’t have a proxy and I have not willingly configured one anywhere. By the way gradle-6.2.2-all.zip gets downloaded fine as part of the build, so my Internet is working.
