Failed to build apache kudu because unable to connect to service.gradle.org

When trying to build kudu in my ec2, I got an error “HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden”. My connection was opened through a proxy. The domain that we are trying to connect to here is “service .gradle.org”. This can be accessed through HTTPS. Here the build is run using the gradle wrapper jar (v6.8.3). Here, a 403 Forbidden error of the above type kept appearing. It lookes like the connection is trying to use HTTP instead of HTTPS.

This problem is not occurring when the build is run in an environment without a proxy
