Error wilth building app on android emulator flutter

Issue

I do not know what went wrong but each time i tried to run this code in on the emulator it shows an error in the terminal and won’t run, but once i choose chrome as the testing device it works smoothly , i am trying to use the geolocator package from pub.dev

my code:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:geolocator/geolocator.dart';

class LoadingScreen extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _LoadingScreenState createState() => _LoadingScreenState();
}

class _LoadingScreenState extends State<LoadingScreen> {
  void geolocation() async {
    Position position = await Geolocator.getCurrentPosition(
      desiredAccuracy: LocationAccuracy.low,
    );
    print(position);
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      body: Center(
        child: ElevatedButton(
          onPressed: () {
            geolocation();
            //Get the current location
          },
          child: Text('Get Location'),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

the error displayed:

Solution

Change compileSDKVersion from 29 to 31

android {

    compileSdkVersion 31
    defaultConfig {
        minSdkVersion 21 
        targetSdkVersion 29
    }
}
