How to solve: Android License Status Unknown

>[!] Android toolchain - develop for Android devices (Android SDK 27.0.3)

I am getting an error with Android SDK when I run Flutter doctor, although I can still build/run it on my device. I was just curious about how to fix this issue. I believe I have the most updated version of the Android SDK downloaded, not sure what happened because I didn't have this issue last week.

##New Issues After following several possible fixes in the comments it has led to a new problem. I installed newer versions of android sdk P, 8, and 7 along with a new jdk10. Still not updated enough apparently.

C:\Flutter\flutter>flutter doctor --android-licenses
A newer version of the Android SDK is required. To update, run:
C:\Users\tdmil\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\tools\bin\sdkmanager --update

C:\Flutter\flutter>C:\users\username\appdata\local\android\sdk\tools\bin\sdkmanager.bat --update

Question answered by rmtmckenzie (source).

If you updated the android SDK, the licenses may have changed. Depending on how you did the update you may or may not have been prompted to accept the changes, or maybe it just doesn't save the fact that you did accept them in a way flutter can understand.

To resolve, try running

flutter doctor --android-licenses

This should prompt you to accept licenses (it may ask you first, in case just type y and press enter - although it should tell you that).

If you still have problems after doing that, it might be worth either opening a new bug in the Flutter Github repository, or adding a comment on an existing issue like this one as it may be what you're seeing.
