Plugins upgrading without consent and causing errors?


#1

Hi all.

I’m not sure what’s going on here… but I continue to get errors when building and adding platform. I’m on latest version of ionic and have tried downgrading too.

This is the error:

Failed to restore plugin “cordova-plugin-media-capture” from config.xml. You might need to try adding it again. Error: Version of installed plugin: “cordova-plugin-file@5.0.0” does not satisfy dependency plugin requirement “cordova-plugin-file@^4.0.0”. Try --force to use installed plugin as dependency.

In my config.xml and package.json I have these dependencies:

And a bunch of other dependencies that also have dependencies for this. However, when the script comes to install cordova-plugin-file plugin, it grabs version 5.0.0. This isn’t compatible with another plugin I’m using so it throws an error - but why is it fetching version 5.0.0 if I’ve explicitly set 4.3.3?

Another plugin has a dependency for cordova-plugin-file, such as this one:

So my guess is that it’s finding this plugin first, and installing the latest version of cordova-plugin-file - and then fails when it gets to another plugin that is dependant on an earlier version… however, moving the cordova-plugin-file dependency to the top of the config.xml doesn’t seem to help.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Many thanks!

Show us your ionic info output and config.xml and package.json files please.


#3

Sure.

Also worth noting the same config.xml is working on a colleagues machine… same npm, ionic and cordova version though.

Thanks.

You’re nowhere near this. Upgrade your app-scripts as first priority.

Ok, thanks. So I’ve completely reinstalled node/npm, and ionic and updated app-scripts etc. Now this is my ionic info and the same issue is happening:

Thanks again.

The Android Persistent storage location now defaults to "Internal". Please check this plugin's README to see if your application needs any changes in its config.xml.

If this is a new application no changes are required.

If this is an update to an existing application that did not specify an "AndroidPersistentFileLocation" you may need to add:

      "<preference name="AndroidPersistentFileLocation" value="Compatibility" />"

to config.xml in order for the application to find previously stored files.

This is where stuff starts going wrong, right?

Can you recreate this with a plain Cordova project?
Adding these 3 plugins should be enough to recreate the problem, right?

Would make understanding the problem much easier - and also allow you to post the problem at issues.cordova.io.
