Can't download/install system image in SDK manager. Getting 'Done. Nothing was installed.' message.
Hi guys I need a little help, please. In the tutorial for creating a simple android app I'm trying to set up the emulator for my Fun Facts project. In the SDK manager I need to install the system image and SDK platform, but when I try to install it I get this message: 'Done. Nothing was installed.' I can see there's been a similar question from someone else before, but it seems it hasn't been answered yet. Grateful if you could let me know where I'm going wrong. Thanks, Ben

While installing libraries SDK Manager creates temp folder and saves zip files in it. Most probably your OS doesn't allow that due to permission settings. Try to start SDK Manager as Administrator.
If you can't find a better way, in Windows, in SDK/tools folder find Android.bat file and run it, also as administrator. I think it's a safest way to start SDK Manager with permissions and everything else needed set.

I am having the same issue but on a Mac. Does any one know how to correct this? Since I do not have windows I am not sure if the answer above applies to me?
Thanks in advance!
