it helps some times This exception is thrown when an application attempts to perform a networking operation on its main thread. Run your code in AsyncTask:
code :
class downloadFile extends AsyncTask<Void, Void, Void>

        protected Void doInBackground(Void... params) 
            downloadFile(file_url_list[position], "aaa");
            return null;


new downloadFile().execute();

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
