Hello, I got same error this morning. I’m trying to solve it, if I success, let you know it.


#3

Did you create an issue at the plugin’s Git repo?


#4

I did not create issue at git repo yet.


#5

Me and My friend got this the sam issue.


#6

I solved it.

npm install -g ionic@latest
npm install -g cordova@latest
npm install -g cordova-android@latest
ionic cordova platform rm android
ionic cordova platform add android
cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-compat --force
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-compat@latest

If you get permission error, use sudo.

I removed platform and added again, then it worked. Try it.


#7

Hey…thank you. It works for me.


#8

Hi it does not work for me .I have my node_modules installed in the same directory ,should I run all the commands without -g then?


#9

Hi i am also getting this error. The solution is not working for me. i tried without -g command also. anyone solve this issue ??
if i remove the facebook plugin it’s working.


#10

same issue here I also ran it with and without -g .Actually im facing this issue while running the npm install -g cordova-android@latest command : http://prntscr.com/hju8r8


#11

Hi,

I had the same issue with cordova-plugin-facebook4 this morning, however I am using phonegap build and not ionic. I have solved the issue and wanted to write it here in case it helps.
Use a specific release of the plugin instead of the latest.
For example on phonegap build I was using 1.9.0 (circa the latest) and it all of a sudden stopped working today.
I have changed the version to 1.7.4 and the plugin is working now.
See the compatibility section here:
https://www.npmjs.com/package/cordova-plugin-facebook4


#12

npm install -g ionic@latest
npm install -g cordova@latest
npm install -g cordova-android@latest
ionic cordova platform rm android
ionic cordova platform add android //my version is 6.3.0
cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-compat --force
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-compat@1.2

Hope you get luck. This solves my problem

Just tried to build my app for the first time today. I noticed a lot of unexpected downloads (see log here under) but the build went thru with success

Would you like to give a try again? Maybe these libs weren’t published when you tried earlier today?

I solved this problem by reverse facebook version to 1.7.4
cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-facebook4
ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-facebook4@1.7.4 --variable APP_ID= --variable APP_NAME=


#15

This solution worked for me. Thanks.


#16

Yes this worked for me too - thanks!


#17

If I may, downgrading is not a solution, it’s a workaround :wink:

Keep an eye on it


#18

When you said that a lot of downloads were made when you build you project, by any chance do you have installed the plugin cordova-android-support-gradle-release? I was reading about a similar problem reported with version 1.9.1 of the facebook4 plugin and someone suggests to install the gradle-release plugin: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44235605/cordova-manifest-merger-failed/44311407#44311407


#19

No I didn’t (just double checked and searched all references of cordova-android-support-gradle-release, just find some in a README of another plugin, nothing more)


#20

Just in case my Ionic Info. Also I have the last version of Android Studio 3.0 installed

Also note, I still have cordova-plugin-compat in my references (it look like some of the unexpected download mentioned above contains the name compat)
