Questions:

About 34hours ago I generated a signed apk but now, I’ve been unable to generate a signed Apk and I have no idea on how to fix this. Please Help

Here’s my Output message

Error:Note: there were 11 duplicate class definitions.
(http://proguard.sourceforge.net/manual/troubleshooting.html#duplicateclass)
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

BUILD FAILED in 10s

Here’s my build.gradle(app)

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'
apply plugin: 'io.fabric'

android {

    buildToolsVersion '27.0.3'
    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.myapp……"
        minSdkVersion 17
        targetSdkVersion 26

        versionName "5.0"
    }

Here’s my build.gradle(project)

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.

buildscript {
    ext.kotlin_version = '1.2.10'
    ext.support_version = '26.1.0'
    ext.firebase_version = '12.0.1'
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        google()
        maven {
            url 'https://maven.fabric.io/public'
        }
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.1.0'
        classpath 'io.fabric.tools:gradle:1.25.1'

        // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
        // in the individual module build.gradle files
        classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.1.2'
        classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:$kotlin_version"
    }
}

allprojects {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
        google()
    }
}

task clean(type: Delete) {
    delete rootProject.buildDir
}
How to&Answers:

It’s a lintValidRelease issue.
You need an add lintOptions in Gradle file.

android {
..
     lintOptions {

        checkReleaseBuilds false

    }
}

Answer:

For me the problem was due to the missing repositories in allproject part:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
        google()
        jcenter()
    }
}

allprojects {
    ...
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
        google()
        jcenter()
    }
}

after I added google() and jcenter() the project now is built successfully
