No version of NDK matched the requested version in Flutter>> Solved.

The SHA1 key to integrate firebase in my flutter app.
After updating to Android Gradle plugin 3.6.0 (released Feb 24, 2020), several project independently started failing with: and i got this error

No version of NDK matched the requested version 20.0.5594570. Versions available locally: 21.0.6113669

It’s quite simple to “fix” this locally by installing the older expected ndk version:

sdkmanager 'ndk;20.0.5594570'

However, my question is: Where and how is this older version specified? And how do I update it so it matches the latest version 21.0.6113669?

After some Research I found the solution..

I am assuming the machine you are using currently has NDK installed and was previously able to build your project but started failing with the error “No version of NDK matched the requested version” after updating to Android Gradle plugin 3.6.0. Before proceeding make sure to have NDK installed Right ?

The First thing you need to try is

Table of Contents

Option 1:

You can simply select your locally installed NDK in the Project Structure Dialog

You can open the Project Structure Dialog by clicking File > Project Structure... or by pressing the hotkeys CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + S (on windows)

Once the Project Structure Dialog is open, go to SDK Location and select your locally installed version of NDK under Android NDK Location. Typically this is installed somewhere in your user folder then \AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\ndk\%ndk version% at least for Windows.

Option 2:

Doing option 1 will edit your file for you and will work in most cases. But if you want to use a consistent NDK version on all machines you build the project with, according to this official guide, you can configure it from your module gradle script. Simply add the ndkVersion in your module gradle script’s android{} block like so.

android {
    ndkVersion ""

replacing the string between the double quotes with the NDK version you want to use
