Issue

long time I didn’t have an issue like that. Possibly it’s related to testing the Preview build on that project.

Currently on stable Android Studio Version 3.2.1 I always get this strange error: src=”https://i.stack.imgur.com/VrI49.png” alt=”enter image description here”>

What I already did:

  • Invalidate Caches and Restart
  • Clean Build
  • Test Terminal Build (everything works)
  • Import the project from scratch (it’s really small so no problems there – same issue)
  • Deleted the /Users/myUserName/.gradle/ folder – completely
  • Deleted all my Android Studio preferences under: /Users/myUserName/Library/Preferences/AndroidStudio3.2/
  • Deleted “.iml” files and “.idea” folder and tried to import the project again
  • Updated system Gradle version to latest Gradle (4.10.2)
  • Moved the project to some other directory (nearly root level) to just test all possible errors
  • Updated / Changed build tools, targetSdkVersion and compileSdkVersion
  • Tried disable and reenable AndroidStudio android support plugin

Basically all efforts were without any improvements. Still, something must be wrong with the AS setup, because in Terminal builds everything works out perfect. Other projects still work perfectly.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Thanks!

Solution

As mentioned and analyzed in the Google bug tracking issue https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/118342198

The issue was produced by configuring and adding a gradle constants file within a library sub project. That means:

This gradle dependency file was integrated in the top-level gradle file

appProject/someLibrary/some_constants.gradle

at

appProject/build.gradle

by

apply from: "someLibrary/some_constants.gradle"

Removing this line fixed the sync issue.

The overall solution was to move the some_constants.gradle file to the top level folder and just import it there directly.

apply from: "some_constants.gradle"

The interesting part: This sync issue just occurred if there was ONLY a library module within the project. As soon as an app module was also present this issue didn’t occur anymore.
