Null issue in Android Studio Gradle


After I upgraded the Android Studio to Dolphin my project, which worked perfectly fine in Chipmunk, stopped working by giving me this weird error from Gradle:

enter image description here

There is no explanation of what is wrong except this weird error null.
I tried lots of stuff like:

  1. Invalidating caches and restart
  2. Deleting .gradle files
  3. Upgrading the Gradle and Gradle Plugin. Right now versions are, for Gradle Plugin: 7.3.0 and for Gradle 7.4
  4. Updated google services to the latest version 4.3.14

But none of this helped and I don’t know what is wrong so any help is more than welcome. Thanks in advance.


It seems this is an Android Studio bug and is still active on the Google Issuetracker.

Apparently two people have found a workaround by:

  • Deleting the .idea folder and restarting Android Studio
  • Deleting the .idea, .gradle, build folders and restarting Android Studio

Hope this helps!
