[sdk 37; error] expo publish/build asking for AndroidManifest.xml?

Expo CLI 3.17.8 environment info:
OS: Windows 10 10.0.18363
Node: 13.1.0 - C:\Program Files\nodejs\node.EXE
npm: 6.14.4 - C:\Program Files\nodejs\npm.CMD
expo: ^37.0.3 => 37.0.3
react: ^16.9.0 => 16.9.0
react-native: 0.61.4 => 0.61.4

So I updated to expo sdk 37.

Went fine.

Now everytime I publish or build (android) it’s giving me an error

› Closing Expo server
› Stopping Metro bundler
ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ‘C:..app\android\app\src\main\AndroidManifest.xml’

The publishing is fine as this comes after, but its making my builds abort!


Same issue here… Expo team?

Hmm… I just created the empty AndroidManifest.xml file and it works…

It’s an issue with the latest expo cli.

I have 3.16.4 or something on another laptop and it’s working fine.

Downgraded to expo-cli@3.16.0 for now and it worked.

Thank you all for the help on this. Yesterday I was tasked with the easy of job of managing builds on our expo project (first time using expo) and this bug had me very confused.
