Building with Gradle error

So I’ve made an empty project and added 3 plugins to it : Gamesparks, Appodeal( an ad mediator ) and MultiDex from the marketplace because the project had too many methods. Now i’ve been trying to make this work for a while and fixed bugs along the way that were preventing it from building but now i’m at an impass. This is the error I get :

Now I think I get that there is an issue with those 2 manifest files but my problem is that I have no idea where to find them since the intermediate folder is such a mess. Any tips here?

Full log can be found here if interested :

Looks at the AndroidManifest.xml in Intermediate/Android/APK/gradle/app/main/src/main. Also, looks like the clean failed because the path length is too deep.

Thanks for the help. I did find the guilty manifest and it turned out there were some duplicate entries for some reason. Removed them and works now!

got the same problem, open the license file in android sdk with notepad, it should have only a key like this 8933bad161af4178b1185d1a37fbf41ea5269c55, but when you accept the sdk license it puts a white line before and have error.
just remove the white line
