the problem was that iam running a 64-bit version of linux and changed my OS recently and i forgot to install necessary 32-bit libraries.

in Ubuntu :

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 lib32stdc++6

in Fedora :

sudo yum install zlib.i686 ncurses-libs.i686 bzip2-libs.i686

if you get this error in Ubuntu :

E: Unable to locate package lib32bz2-1.0 E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'lib32bz2-1.0' E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'lib32bz2-1.0'

you can skip this library and use this command :

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32stdc++6


Try Build -> Clean Project

Sometimes Gradle builds will fail due to duplicate build files in the project.
