I cannot find the problem from the error :

What went wrong: Task ‘lint’ not found in root project ‘My Project’. Some candidates are: 'init’

Recently I have expo sdk 44 bare workflow. Then I upgrade it to sdk 45 following this blog

https://blog.expo.dev/expo-sdk-45-f4e332954a68

After upgrading, Then I try to upgrade my Gradle Plugin AGP and Gradle Version.

This is my gradle version :

distributionUrl=https://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-7.3.3-bin.zip

And this is my AGP Version :

classpath(“com.android.tools.build:gradle:7.2.0”)

According to the documentation here :

For Plugin AGP for the latest version : 7.2 We should use Gradle Version 7.3.3+

I also remove jcenter() from project/android => build.gradle because cause error.

But it is not clear what cause the problem from my side. I cannot run expo run:android or npm run android. It always say :

What went wrong:
Task ‘lint’ not found in root project ‘my project’. Some candidates are: ‘init’.

I also cannot use gradlew clean. But I found some thread post from stackoveflow to add :

apply plugin:'base’

inside the path : android => build.gradle.

And it is working. Now I can use gradlew clean.

But after clean the gradle. The main error I mention and show at above still occured.

What is the solution to my error ? How I can run my expo run:android or npm run android. I use expo bare workflow from the start.

Any help will be appreciated. I have struggle for investigation for almost 3 days before I post and ask in here.

Thank You

I just reinstall the expo modules. from this https://docs.expo.dev/bare/installing-expo-modules/

npx install-expo-modules@latest

And it removed the error.
