Ionic Package: Execution failed for task ':processDebugManifest'


#1

Ionic packaging was working good few days ago.
Today, I received the following message :

ANDROID_HOME=/opt/android-sdk
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle
Error: Could not find gradle wrapper within Android SDK. Might need to update your Android SDK.
Looked here: /opt/android-sdk/tools/templates/gradle/wrapper

I added the following to my config.xml file : engine name=“android” spec="~6.2.3"

Now, receiving this error :

ANDROID_HOME=/opt/android-sdk
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle
:wrapper

I have the exact same problem on two different projects (using different cordova plugins). And none of those plugins is one of @appuser_apogeephysic mentionned.


Ionic package: error when building in ionic cloud
#2

As always with Ionic Package problems:

(Scroll down to “Business and Customer Support”)

On a more general note: Two plugins are requesting different versions of the android support library here. Currently this quite common because of that alpha1 version of 26.0.0. As far as I know there was no real solution yet.
