Something is duplicated in your config.xml or via a plugin.xml, the supported Android version. Go through those and check.


#3

i didnt change config.xml and even tho i tried using the very old config.xml on my git project.

this is how my config.xml looks.

i also deleted platofrms and plugins folder and then added the android@6.2.3… but same issue.

From this page, i added the following in build.gradle for a temporary fix.

configurations.all {
    resolutionStrategy.eachDependency { DependencyResolveDetails details ->
        def requested = details.requested
        if (requested.group == 'com.android.support') {
            if (!requested.name.startsWith("multidex")) {
                details.useVersion '25.3.0'
            }
        }
    }
}

I would guess one of the plugins is requesting a specific Android API version that clashes with what the rest wants somehow.


#5

I’m having the same exact problem with an ionic1 project. I think it started after I removed all my plugins and added them back in order to fix some other issue. Any idea how to fix it?

Thanks


#6

Now my other project that is completely different is also getting this error when trying to run android…


#7

Facing same error using last version of cordova-plugin-facebook4

Issue linked: https://github.com/jeduan/cordova-plugin-facebook4/issues/507


#8

Look like @danielle113 solved that problem


#9

that is a temporary fix until facebook plugin is fixed.


#10

Well I think that’s the fix which gonna be included in the plugin if possible…
