Android Studio Gradle DSL method not found: 'android()' -- Error(17,0)

I am attempting to run my project in Android Studio but the error appears below:

enter image description here

I have followed many sources just to get this to run and have wound up here, but do not know what else to do.

How can I configure this project to run?

build.gradle:

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.
buildscript {
repositories {
mavenCentral()
}
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.9.+'
}
}

allprojects {
repositories {
mavenCentral()
}
}

android {
compileSdkVersion 19
buildToolsVersion "19.1"
}


settings.gradle:

include ':app'


local.properties:

sdk.dir=C\:\\Users\\KJA\\AppData\\Local\\Android\\sdk


gradle.propertes:

# IDE (e.g. Android Studio) users:
# Settings specified in this file will override any Gradle settings
# configured through the IDE.

# For more details on how to configure your build environment visit
# http://www.gradle.org/docs/current/userguide/build_environment.html

# Specifies the JVM arguments used for the daemon process.
# The setting is particularly useful for tweaking memory settings.
# Default value: -Xmx10248m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m
# org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

# When configured, Gradle will run in incubating parallel mode.
# This option should only be used with decoupled projects. More details, visit
# http://www.gradle.org/docs/current/userguide/multi_project_builds.html#sec:decoupled_projects
# org.gradle.parallel=true

I went ahead and downloaded the project from the link you provided: http://javapapers.com/android/android-chat-bubble/

Since this is an old tutorial, you simply need to upgrade the software, gradle, the android build tools and plugin.

Make sure you have the latest Gradle and Android Studio:

build.gradle:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
    }

    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.0.0'
    }
}

allprojects {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
    }
}

app/build.gradle:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion '23.0.3'

    defaultConfig {
        minSdkVersion 9
        targetSdkVersion 23
        versionCode 1
        versionName '1.0'
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.2.1'
}

Then run gradle:

gradle installDebug
