Answer

You need to the latest gradle version to solve this issue

Get Latest Gradle here

and then update your gradle.build with this

buildscript {
repositories {
    jcenter() 
}
dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.1.2'
}
}

and gradle will update build tools which are causing the issue

Hope it helps
