Ubuntu – Sdk is missing error android studio


I just installed Android Studio on Ubuntu 16.04 and I can't open it.
When the welcome page of android studio opens I click on Start a new Android Studio project and it says Your Android SDK is missing, out of date or corrupted.
I downloaded the last version of SDK Tools from android studio webpage and tried to add it to sdk manager but it says: Target folder is neither empty nor does it point to an existing SDK installation…
I don't know what to do now..! :((

I had the same problem and I solved it by following these steps:

  1. Go to android studio and then go to configure option on the bottom of the window.
  2. Go to 'project default' option in that option and click on project structure option.
  3. Change the SDK location to your sdk location. (If you get errors such as your location not a platforms you must go to your sdk location and make an empty folder and rename it to 'platforms'. Then you must repeat this steps.)

    Note:this error may arise when your sdk folder not a 'platforms' folder and you must make an empty folder and rename it to 'platforms'. platforms folder must be in the sdk folder.
