Sounds like your firewall prevents access to Maven Central, or at least to

PS: Please use a more specific title for posts.

I have the same problem (with a different library), without any firewall configured. Could there be anything else that causes the issue?

It clearly is system-dependent, but I can’t figure out the cause.

We are seeing similar reports from people on certain kinds of systems. Looks like there’s some network issue with the central repo. We are investigating.

In case it helps you, the issue does not appear to be limited to gradle. Maven Central just does not respond. Here is wget:

Switching to Reflections 0.9.8 solves the issue for me. Green lights on all channels.
