I was getting this bug when I was building my android app through Ionic Cordova “:app:transformNativeLibsWithStripDebugSymbolForDebug’”. I was able to fix this issue by reverting the NDK back to r16b instead of the more recent r17b. It fixed the build issue but I have been getting an emulator issue, Failed to execute shell command “getprop,dev.bootcomplete”" on device: in which the emulator starts but the app does not install. I feel like the emulator problem is tied to the fact that I am using r16b NDK version instead of r17b. If there is a chance that you could fix the issue the cordova libraries are having with r17b that would be great.
