help me please.


Have you solve this problem. I also have same problem with you. ‘ionic serve’ works but when I try ‘ionic cordova run android’ trigger this error to me. Thank you.

First of all you have to update your npm.

npm install npm@latest -g

The current version should be 5.6.0

Your global packages are also outdated.

npm update -g

The current version should be 8.0.0

Now lets fix the camera issue:

Check out your plugins folder. If the cordova-plugin-camera is present remove it.

Also remove the platforms folder in your application folder. Same as the node_modules folder.

After that do npm-install.

Lets install camera again:

$ ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-camera
$ npm install --save @ionic-native/camera

Now try:
ionic cordova run android

It should work now. (I hope :sweat_smile:)
