First off, @ionic-native is dead and was migrated over to awesome-cordova-plugins back in 2021. See A New Chapter for @ionic-native - Ionic Blog.

I don’t see the downloader plugin in the awesome-cordova-plugin repo so it’s most likely not a viable option any more.

The plugin uses GitHub - Luka313/integrator-cordova-plugin-downloader: Cordova android plugin for downloading files via DownloadManager which hasn’t been updated for 5 years so my guess is that it no longer supports the latest version of Android.

I am also facing the same issue in ‘downloader’ while upgrading to Ionic 7. So, what can I do for this? Are there any alternations ?
