Android SDK Tools update fails

If the update of your Android SDK Tools fails, because a folder could not be moved, try this solution:

  1. Create a copy of your “tools” folder under your “Android/android-sdk” folder
  2. Go into that copied folder and run the file “android.bat”
  3. The Android SDK Manager will start and allow you to update whatever you want to without errors
  4. After the update you can close the SDK Manager and delete the copied “tools” folder
