Dart Flutter FAILURE: Build failed with an exception. Error

Issue

I took a few steps to publish my app on Play Store. Since making them, I’ve been getting errors when converting codes to APK.

I did the steps here: https://docs.flutter.dev/deployment/android#configure-signing-in-gradle


Error:

task clean(type: Delete) {
    delete rootProject.buildDir
}

I will publish the app on Google Play Store.
https://docs.flutter.dev/deployment/android#configure-signing-in-gradle I did the ones in this link.

What is the problem? How can I solve it? Thank you very much in advance for the help.

Solution

Put both key.properties and key.jks files directly to the android folder , not inside src. And, in the key.properties file, do the following:

storePassword=secure
keyPassword=secure
keyAlias=key
storeFile=../key.jks
