Hi, the problem seems to persist somehow.

We’re using Gradle 1.11 and have the following configuration in gradle/wrapper/


I get the following error:


Unzipping /Users/damien/.gradle/wrapper/dists/gradle-1.11-all/7qd8qq8te5j4f5q9aaei3gh3lj/ to /Users/damien/.gradle/wrapper/dists/gradle-1.11-all/7qd8qq8te5j4f5q9aaei3gh3lj
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: zip file is empty

	at org.gradle.wrapper.WrapperExecutor.execute(
	at org.gradle.wrapper.GradleWrapperMain.main(
Caused by: zip file is empty

The downloaded ZIP file in indeed empty (0 bytes).

However, when I follow redirections on Curl, I do not have any problem accessing the ZIP:

curl -vL

Switching to https fixes the issue but we have hundreds of projects which are now impacted, including some long running maintenance branches we don’t want to update.

Any idea about this problem?


@Damien_Coraboeuf we have fixed the http endpoint. This should no longer be an issue.

I confirm this is fixed. Thanks.

We are now looking actively in using a proxy instead of a direct URL.

We’re currently experiencing ongoing issues related to this outage. We are working with our upstream provider to resolve and will post updates as they are available. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Issues have been resolved and service should be restored now.
