I also got error when build APK, the build was stuck at uploading to s3 and after a while I received a message that “Our code break” on the web build and “Cannot read property ‘status’ of undefined” in the cmd. I happened 2 times of APK build

Hey all,

Can you let me know if you were able to build successfully? If not, are you still experiencing the same issues?


Hi Adam, Thanks for asking. Finally I managed to build again. The issue was;
“locales”: {
“en”: “./assets/translations/en.json”,
“pl”: “./assets/translations/pl.json”
in app.json. Somehow, ‘en’ is causing build issue on android side. When I delete it, build works fine.
