Android native, manifest-merge problem during quickstart-setup

Hi there!
Im following the quickstart for a native android app.
Got application-keys, added to strings.xml.
Added callback url in auth0 ui.
Added android.permission.INTERNET to Manifest.xml
Added Auth0 dep in build.gradle and after that I get a error:

Android resource linking failed
/Users/xx/AndroidStudioProjects/MyAppName/app/build/intermediates/merged_manifests/debug/AndroidManifest.xml:13: error: unexpected element found in .

My build.gradle file:

apply plugin: ‘’

android {
compileSdkVersion 29
defaultConfig {
applicationId “”
minSdkVersion 29
targetSdkVersion 29
versionCode 2
versionName “1.0”
testInstrumentationRunner “”
manifestPlaceholders = [auth0Domain: “@string/com_auth0_domain”, auth0Scheme: “demo”]
buildTypes {
release {
minifyEnabled false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile(‘proguard-android-optimize.txt’), ‘’

dependencies {
implementation fileTree(dir: ‘libs’, include: [’*.jar’])
implementation ‘’
implementation ‘’
implementation ‘’
testImplementation ‘junit:junit:4.12’
androidTestImplementation ‘’
androidTestImplementation ‘’

Any ideas?

Solved by upgrading gradle… You may want to add a note here in the quickstart…
