Error: Failed to fetch platform andriod

I arrived my work and the first thing I did was try to install an Ionic 3 app in my android device but I got an error. It is strange because the previous day it worked.

ionic cordova build andriod


alxkc (photo) FindMeMobile $ ionic cordova build andriod
> cordova platform add andriod --save
Using cordova-fetch for andriod

Error: Failed to fetch platform andriod
Probably this is either a connection problem, or platform spec is incorrect.
Check your connection and platform name/version/URL.

Typing mistake


android not andriod :wink:


Omg! This is a completely shame. I was using exactly the same command every time I tried it. I removed the platform, and added it again, and removed, and install again the newest version. But was that, I was typing wrong android lol. This is a teach for other people that have typos while programming.


You just arrived at work, I think you just needed a coffee first :wink:

Glad it worked out


i wasted 4hrs to fix just spelling mistake and learnt a lot then i started pronouncing it correctly

i have the same. Google, install, uninstall, … prepare. till reading your post and review myselft, --> anroid (oh, my stupid.) It take me 1 hours

I’ve typed the command for thousands of times and I can’t believe I made a typo error :sleeping:
