This is my app.json

    "name": "FMC Keffi SOP",
    "slug": "sop",
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "orientation": "portrait",

    "splash": {
      "image": "./assets/splash2.png",
      "resizeMode": "contain",
      "backgroundColor": "#fffff"
    },
    "updates": {
      "fallbackToCacheTimeout": 0
    },
    "assetBundlePatterns": [
      "**/*"
    ],
    "ios": {
      "supportsTablet": true
    },
    "android": {

      "adaptiveIcon": {

        "backgroundColor": "#fffff"
      }
      
    },
    
    "web": {
      "favicon": "./assets/favicon.png"
    }
  }
}

I ran expo diagnostics and this is the result:

You only have 5 "f"s in your backgroundColors. There should be 6.
