EAS error build Android : withAndroidManifestBaseMod: Cannot read property 'manifest' of null

Dear Team,

Happy New Year, I hope the year will be good for you.
I have a problem when I want to build my Android project with eas build.
Indeed, I have this error message :

Prebuilding managed project
- Creating native project directories (./ios and ./android) and updating .gitignore
✔ Created native project | /android already created | gitignore already synced
- Adding Metro bundler config
- Updating your package.json scripts, dependencies, and main file
✔ Updated package.json and added index.js entry point for iOS and Android
- Config syncing
✖ Config sync failed

I don’t have problems with iOS build.
I tried to recreate iOS and Android folder’s and I have the same problem.
I don’t have the problem when I build my project with Android Studio.
Could you help me to resolve this issue ?

My project is an Expo Bare with SDK 44.

Thanks you for your help,
Kind regards,

if you have a bare project you should not be running expo prebuild and EAS Build will not run this for bare projects. are you not committing your android directory to git?

Thanks for your back !
I use a .gitignore for my Andoird folder :

# Android

It’s correct ?
