No I can’t help you as you only posted an image and I can’t copy/paste the error text to search the forum or google for a solution. Please post text and format it so that it is readable.


#3

Sorry, I edited the post and pasted the code.
Thank you!


#4

Thanks.

Run the build command again with --verbose at the end. Also try running the same command directly in cordova (leave the ionic off at the beginning but add --info at the end). Also post your ionic cordova plugin list.

Unfortunately I have no idea what exactly this means and the other commands didn’t give more information or what is causing cordova to crash on it. Something is duplicated, but no idea what and why.

Did the project build before?
Did you add any native Java code (Cordova plugins) recently?


#7

hm, i only install ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-nativestorage and remove, before this i think update Repository Google with Android studio for 54 API, nothing more.

Thanks.


#8

Hi Sujan, just to share the solution, to solve the error I entered the build.gradle inside the platform / and inserted in

defaultConfig {
 multiDexEnabled true
}

After that it worked normally.

Thanks!


#9

What does that do exactly?


#10

I don’t know why, but i think the problem is relational with API 26 Android and cordova.

https://developer.android.com/studio/build/multidex.html


#11

I have this same problem.

adding multiDexEnabled true didn’t help.

I am not comfortable editing the build files if this is something Ionic can do. Because I never know if which ones get generated on the fly.


Build of Android APK failed with Push Notification and Badge in project
#12

thanks happy new year ,Your solution helped me very much

defaultConfig {
minSdkVersion 21
targetSdkVersion 26
multiDexEnabled true
}


#13

thank you @doriantorres84. Your solution works on cordova-android@6.3.0 and cordova-android@6.4.0. So, here make it more detail.

  • open platform/android/build.gradle
  • find android {
  • add this inside
    defaultConfig {
     minSdkVersion 21
     targetSdkVersion 26
     multiDexEnabled true
    }
  • it should looks like this
android {
    defaultConfig {
     minSdkVersion 21
     targetSdkVersion 26
     multiDexEnabled true
    }

    //the rest...
}

#14

Thanks so much for this!
