What could be the possible reason/s for this error?

try this

  1. ionic platform remove android
  2. ionic platform add android

Hi thanks for the reply. I already do that many times but the error still occurs.

Also, it is ionic cordova platform add/remove android.

Any updates? I have experiencing the exact same error and haven’t found a solution.

Hi, I just created a new project and it works fine now.

Yeah, I had to move everything from Windows to a Mac and it worked fine after I did that. Very unfortunate.
