  1. There may be problem with your internet connection from AVD manager to Android repository browser and frankly speaking ,it is hard for me to point out exact solution from your comment.But if you need to add new “android platforms” ,you can manually download the zip files as described here
    And once the required package is downloaded unzip it on your android-sdk -platform folder under platforms or platform-tools depending upon the download zip
