Local reproduction

Can it be reproduced on your own Mac/PC by following our local debug guide? Please follow at least the first section (“Testing with a full clean git clone”) to make sure to test the state of the code what will get when it does a git clone in the clean environment! If possible please note which sections you tried.


Local reproduction: Linux / Android (docker based) stack builds

Can it be reproduced by running the build locally, after doing a new git clone of the repository into the /tmp directory and running the build from there with the Bitrise CLI ( Bitrise CLI )? If no, can it be reproduced with Docker (using the same docker images / environment we use on Related guide: .

(Not attempted)

Build log

Please copy paste the build’s URL here (or if the issue happens somewhere else then the full logs), or if you can’t share the url / log here then send the url or full log through a private channel (e.g. email - Contact us ), with a link to the related Discuss issue.

If anyone else is seeing this issue, I was able to get around it by setting up a “Set Java Version” step and setting the java version back to Java 8 (the recent update set the default to java 11 it looks like?)


Yes, the stacks still have both Java 8 and Java 11 but the default has been changed to Java 11.
