Gradle failed to download lint-checks-25.2.0.jar

In most cases, Gradle has no problems to fetch all the necessary jars, except for some Jars. In this example, the Gradle failed to download the lint-checks-25.2.0.jar.

If you have tried all the other methods without lucky, try the following solution.

 
C:\workspace3.8\AndroidFire-master>wget https://jcenter.bintray.com/com/android/tools/lint/lint-checks/25.2.0/lint-checks-25.2.0.jar --no-check-certificate -O lint-checks-25.2.0.jar
SYSTEM_WGETRC = c:/progra~1/wget/etc/wgetrc
syswgetrc = c:/etc/wgetrc

This works for me. After downloading, copy the file to the directory below

 
C:\Users\sam\.gradle\caches\modules-2\files-2.1\com.android.tools.lint\lint-checks\25.2.0\c0b3925aa340a05dae352c6af2c8dd7d47c51a52
 

This solution works for almost any similar issue.
