Device ready not firing on android

Not sure if this is a capacitor issue or an ionic issue but platform ready isn’t firing on Android in Emulators or a real device. It fires fine on iOS.

I’m guessing this big error has something to do with it:

This can happen when plugins are in an inconsistent state. Try removing plugins from plugins/ and reinstalling them.

I can’t workout where to delete the plugins from as the last line says and I don’t want to remove the platform as I will loose some set up that I have done and will need to re-add keys etc.

Any clues on where to go? I’ve upgraded to capacitor latest so on 2.2.0, I’ve re sync’d the project as well and no change. One one emulator it just doesn’t even load.
