This is how the settings.gradle file looks

dependencyResolutionManagement {
    repositoriesMode.set(RepositoriesMode.FAIL_ON_PROJECT_REPOS)
    repositories {
        google()
        mavenCentral()
        jcenter() // Warning: this repository is going to shut down soon
    }
}
rootProject.name = "Test8"

I tried removing the dependencyResolutionManagement block which got rid of the build error after gradle sync. Then AndroidStudio fails to generate the files for the template project, there is no run/debug configurations.
