in my code i am using latest version of flutter and packages and remove this error by adding the line in

multiDexEnabled true 

in app level build.gradle

in my case it was due to

//noinspection GradleCompatible
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1'

//noinspection GradleCompatible
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.1.1'

try removing it.

do invalidate caches and restart, later Restarting the laptop did the job for me.

classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.3.2' Change the class path and it will work.

Finally found a solution for this by adding this line to gradle.properties.


If you've tried all the solutions above and still doesn't resolve your issue.

This might not seemed related, but here's my take on it.

Try removing this from your Gradle dependency, I've spend 2 hours of my time because of this roadblock.

implementation "com.squareup.retrofit2:adapter-rxjava2:2.3.0"

Try this, in Android Studio

File > Invalidate Caches/Restart... 

I got an stacktrace similar to yours only when building to Lollipop or Marshmallow, and the solution was to disable Advanved profiling.

Find it here:

Run -> Edit Configurations -> Profiling -> Enable advanced profiling


If any one having this issue in flutter after adding firebase storage. Do flutter clean and re run it, it will work

I already had multidex enabled but the version was too old so upgraded and it fixed the issue:

// Old version
implementation "com.android.support:multidex:1.0.3"
// New version
def multidex_version = "2.0.1"
implementation "androidx.multidex:multidex:$multidex_version"

I removed this issue by adding the following lines

add multiDexEnabled true in android>app>build.gradle inside defaultConfig

add implementation 'com.android.support:multidex:1.0.3' in android>app>build.gradle inside dependencies

Working on android studio: 3.6.3 and gradle version:

classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.6.3'
classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:1.3.72"

Adding this line in

gradle.properties file


Clean Project -> Invalidate caches/restart. My problem resolved with this.

I update this and worked for me in gradle wrapper properties


Encountered Similar issue... the fix for me was changing/updating the gradle version

   classpath "com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.1.2" 


   classpath "com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.1.3"

worked for me

Worked for me when changed:




Removed the package name to all java classes as part of the application and it solved the issue for me :-)

The application was migrated to AndroidX recently.

Solution for:

Caused by 4: com.android.builder.internal.aapt.AaptException: Dependent features configured but no package ID was set.

All feature modules have to apply the library plugin and NOT the application plugin.

build.gradle (:androidApp:feature_A)

apply plugin: 'com.android.library'

It all depends on the stacktrace of each one. Cause 1 WorkExecutionException may be the consequence of other causes. So I suggest reading the full stacktrace from the last cause printed towards the first cause. So if we solve the last cause, it is very likely that we will have fixed the chain of causes from the last to the first.

I attach an example of my stacktrace where the original or concrete problem was in the last cause:

Caused by: org.gradle.workers.internal.DefaultWorkerExecutor$WorkExecutionException: A failure occurred while executing com.android.build.gradle.internal.res.LinkApplicationAndroidResourcesTask$TaskAction

Caused by: com.android.builder.internal.aapt.v2.Aapt2InternalException: AAPT2 aapt2-4.2.0-alpha16-6840111-linux Daemon #0: Unexpected error during link, attempting to stop daemon.

Caused by: java.io.IOException: Unable to make AAPT link command.

Caused by 4: com.android.builder.internal.aapt.AaptException: Dependent features configured but no package ID was set.


Feature Package ID was not set

delete white space in folder name on the path it solved the problem

I had this issue and that was caused by @org.jetbrains.annotations.NotNull() in one of my implementations. I read gradle error carefully and found that.

Check for any special characters in names for all the files of your project (like brackets [] in my case when exporting from unity).

if you are stuck in this error below

Execution failed for task ':app:signReleaseBundle'. > A failure occurred while 
executing com.android.build.gradle.internal.tasks.Workers$ActionFacade > 'other' 
has different root

**then do it change the location your the .abb in time of generating to your project(own project of this .aab) then go to app and then select the realese folder to save your .aab **

I was implementing dark mode in the activity. I just declared attributes tag without using it anywhere so got this same error. Make sure you declare, define and use all the resource values in the code (specially attribute tags).

If you have such resource errors then you will not get a proper problem correction through android studio. You have to keep undo your changes carefully.

In my case, I enabled multidex

Open [project_folder]/app/build.gradle and add following lines.

defaultConfig {

    multiDexEnabled true


dependencies {

    implementation 'com.android.support:multidex:2.0.1'

In right side of android studio click gradle -> app -> build -> assemble. then android studio will start building, and print you a proper message of the issue.

I know this might not be a complete or exact solution, but for those who are still facing issues even after doing what is given on this thread, check for your files in value folder. For me there was a typo and some missing values. Once i fixed them this error stopped.

In my case the issue was related to View Binding. It couldn't generate binding classes due to an invalid xml layout file. In the file I had a Switch with an id switch, which is a Java keyword. Renaming the Switch id resolved the issue.enter image description here

How To Solve A failure occurred while executing com.android.build.gradle.internal.tasks.Workers$ActionFacade Error? To Solve A failure occurred while executing com.android.build.gradle.internal.tasks.Workers$ActionFacade Error Just open your app/build.gradle file and change this line. androidx.core:core-ktx:+ replace with androidx.core:core-ktx:1.6.0 Here is an Example. If you are using androidx.core:core-ktx:+ then this will find the latest version of androidx.core:core-ktx:+ and the latest one is 1.7.0 and the latest version needs the Android 31 compile SDK. So that You are facing this issue. Here is Two Possible Solution use a specific version, use androidx.core:core-ktx:${version} instead of androidx.core:core-ktx:+ upgrade the compile SDK to Android 31 full article is Here

In my case problem arose due to gradle version upgradation from 6.2 all to 6.6 all in gradle wrapper. So i wiped out data of avd and restarted it and then deleted .gradle folder in android/.gradle and then run yarn start --reset-cache and yarn android. Then it worked for me

I got this problem when I directly downloaded code files from GitHub but it was showing this error, but my colleague told me to use "Git bash here" and use the command to Gitclone it. After doing so it works fine.

in my case for Kotlin build.gradle:app add a line dependencies: multiDexEnabled true and add def multidex_version = "2.0.1" implementation 'androidx.multidex:multidex:$multidex_version'

If you getting this error saying signing-config.json (Access denied) means just exit the android studio and just go to the desktop home and click on the android studio icon and give Run as Administrator, this will sort out the problem (or) you can delete the signing-config.json and re-run the program :)

Try checking your anti-virus if it blocked any important Java 8 file/s

My project was working completely fine when suddenly I was getting this error. I spent a good two hours trying to fix this issue. After restarting my computer and rebuilding the project, the issue was still there, but then my anti-virus (Avast) showed a pop-up saying it "protected" me from a dangerous file. I just allowed the file then suddenly everything is working fine like it used to.

In my case, I was using react native and it happened when the gradle was updated to new version. I knew it had something to do with gradlew. I checked the repo which I puhsed few days ago on github. I changed the gradle class path inside android/build.gradle dependencies and added

classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.3.3'

it solved my issue.

found the solution.

add this code to your build.gradle,

dependencies {
    def multidex_version = "2.0.1"
    implementation 'androidx.multidex:multidex:$multidex_version'

then enable the multidex to true

 defaultConfig {
        minSdkVersion 15 
        targetSdkVersion 28
        multiDexEnabled true

I was also facing the same problem a few minutes before when I tried to run a flutter project in my C/(.something../.something../.something../.something....) directory,

So I created a new folder in my E directory and started a new project there and when I run it ..... surprisingly it worked. I don't know why?

This was the message that I got after running in E: directory

change it to android:fillColor="#ffaacc" hope it solve your problem...




defaultConfig {
        multiDexEnabled true

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.android.support:multidex:1.0.3'

and yet theses stuff did not fix my problem, until I increase the compileSdkVersion from 27 to 28, it worked for me.

android {
    compileSdkVersion 28

    sourceSets {
        main.java.srcDirs += 'src/main/kotlin'

    lintOptions {
        disable 'InvalidPackage'

    defaultConfig {
         minSdkVersion 21
        targetSdkVersion 28
        versionCode flutterVersionCode.toInteger()
        versionName flutterVersionName
        multiDexEnabled true

    buildTypes {
        release {
            crunchPngs false

In my case I just had 2 modules named the same way, but in different paths:

from ./settings.gradle

include ':presentation'
include ':third_parties/presentation'

I just renamed one of the two modules and updated ./settings.gradle and I solved the issue:

include ':presentation'
include ':third_parties/ui-implementation'

Hope this might help somebody 👍

I also have the same issue , and you can add this

org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx4608m on your Gradle.properties

but in my case I change like this :

from : org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx2048m -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

to: org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx4608m -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

You may get an error like this when trying to build an app that uses a VectorDrawable for an Adaptive Icon. And your XML file contains "android:fillColor" with a block:



Gradient fill colors are commonly used in Adaptive Icons, such as in the tutorials here, here and here.

Even though the layout preview works fine, when you build the app, you will see an error like this:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':app:mergeDebugResources'.
> A failure occurred while executing com.android.build.gradle.internal.tasks.Workers$ActionFacade
   > Error while processing Project/app/src/main/res/drawable/icon_with_gradient.xml : null

(More info shown when the gradle build is run with --stack-trace flag):

The solution is to move the file icon_with_gradient.xml to drawable-v24/icon_with_gradient.xml or drawable-v26/icon_with_gradient.xml. It's because gradient fills are only supported in API 24 (Android 7) and above. More info here: VectorDrawable: Invalid drawable tag gradient
