Above error gives in after update new AndroidStudio(3.2) with Update Gradle (gradle-4.6-all)


Have been working through this problem all day, lots of head scratching.

What worked for me was going into the ids.xml, and removing all values between the item tags of "type=id"

For example:

<item type="id" name="icon">textToBeRemoved</item>

Goes to

<item type="id" name="icon"></item>

I hope this helps!
