Using miniconda plugin with gradle 1.11

Hello All,
I am trying to use the gradle miniconda plugin (link below) to build python code using gradle.
https://plugins.gradle.org/plugin/com.palantir.mlx.build.miniconda/0.1.0

I am new to gradle. I have used the below config in build.gradle. I am building with gradle 1.11.

###############################
buildscript {
repositories {
maven {
url "https://plugins.gradle.org/m2/"
}
}
dependencies {
classpath "gradle.plugin.com.palantir.mlx.build:gradle-miniconda-plugin:0.1.0"
}
}

apply plugin: "com.palantir.mlx.build.miniconda"
##########################################

Now when I run gradle build, it is failing as shown below

######################################
jaspreet@jaspreet:~/testproject$ gradle build

Can someone help with the above. Also where can I find more info on this plugin on how to build python code with gradle.

Thanks,
