Ionic Build Error with Fresh Installs

I did a fresh install of cordova, ionic, and updated JDK. I also have all the android SDK’s installed. When I do a fresh starter blank android build, I get this:

Any advice?

Ionic run android gives error : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0 may help

I updated JDK to 8 and removed 7, but I’m receiving new errors:

I removed 24, but still get errors with different ‘build-tools’ version. If I only install version 20, then that error simply reflects “build-tools\20.0.0\aapt.exe”
