re: Expo SDK 38 is now available VIEW POST

re: Hi, sorry to bother. I tried upgrading from sdk 37 to 38 and it worked fine, but whenever I run expo start I get this error: Failed building Java...

Did you ever get this resolved? Running into the same issue as well.


Update: Seems like a week or so after sdk 38 was released with react-native-safe-area-context v3.0.3 and by the time of updating, it's now v3.0.7 which might be why this is happening, a dev added readonly to the type def is what it seems from the repo, see here -> github.com/th3rdwave/react-native-...

Updating my node version to latest v14.0.5 (at the time of this writing) seems to solve this for me. In addition, I deleted node_modules, yarn.lock, cleared expo cache (yarn cache clean or npm cache clean) and reinstalled everything a fresh. Even after all this, there were some dependancies that weren't added by expo and all I needed to do after was expo add <dependency_name>, hope this helps.

Thank you so much! It worked for me as well =)

Happy to hear that :)
