How to&Answers:

Seems the new room (ver 2.1.0-alpha06) uses kotlin in itself and has a bug in it. In my case downgrade room version was worked.
Try this until google team release an update for fixing this.
here is my dependencies:

implementation 'androidx.room:room-runtime:2.1.0-alpha04'
annotationProcessor 'androidx.room:room-compiler:2.1.0-alpha04'
implementation 'androidx.room:room-rxjava2:2.1.0-alpha04'

Answer:

Try adding the following dependency to your project repository:

buildscript {

   repositories {
       ...

       maven {
           url 'https://kotlin.bintray.com/kotlinx/'
       }

   }
   dependencies {
       .....
   }
}
