## Step-by-Step Solution

Follow these steps to fix the 'Could Not Resolve All Files for Configuration CompileClasspath' error:

### Step 1: Verify Dependencies

Check your `build.gradle` file and ensure that all required dependencies are correctly added and have valid versions.

### Step 2: Update Dependencies

Update any outdated or incompatible dependencies to the latest compatible versions. You can check the latest version of a dependency on their respective official websites or [Maven Repository](

### Step 3: Check Network Settings

Verify your network settings, especially if you are behind a proxy or firewall. Ensure that Gradle has the proper proxy settings to download the required dependencies. You can configure proxy settings in your `` file or using command line options.

### Step 4: Clear Gradle Cache and Local Repositories

Sometimes, corrupted Gradle cache or local repositories can cause this error. To fix this, clear the cache and local repositories by deleting the `.gradle` folder in your project directory and the `caches` folder in your Gradle user home directory. The default location of the Gradle user home directory is:

- Windows: `C:\Users\<username>\.gradle`
- macOS and Linux: `/home/<username>/.gradle`

After deleting these folders, run the `./gradlew clean build` command to rebuild your project.
