Android SDK installation error – unable to find base platform with API level

Android SDK proxy settings

Installing the Android SDK I kept getting errors like this:

Error: Ignoring add-on 'google_apis-3-r03': Unable to find base platform with API level '3'

The solution is to make sure the settings for the proxy are correct, and then if the problem still persists, check the “Force https://… sources to be fetched using http://…” option.

Could have saved a couple of hours of hair-pulling if I’d figured this out sooner.
