I’m having this error trying to do react-native run-android --variant=release

Starting JS server...
Running /home/sonic182/Android/platform-tools/adb -s ZY2232QD4K reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081
Building and installing the app on the device (cd android && ./gradlew installReleaseDebug)...

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Task 'installReleaseDebug' not found in root project 'gnosisapp'.

* Try:
Run gradlew tasks to get a list of available tasks. Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.

BUILD FAILED

Could not install the app on the device, read the error above for details.
Make sure you have an Android emulator running or a device connected and have
set up your Android development environment:
https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/android-setup.html

(node:24877) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Unhandled promise rejection (rejection id: 2): TypeError: Cannot read property 'message' of undefined

I’m over Ubuntu 16.04, I have done all the steps from here https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/signed-apk-android.html until the testing step where I have to do react-native run-android --variant=release

What could it be? :/
Thanks

If you are running React Native 0.39.x, please use this:
