Packaging failed due to gradle... any Ideas?

hey guys for nearly 2 days this has been making me go bald.

it happens on every android project that I have including new projects.

Stuff i’ve tried:

  • Reinstall VS2017 (Fresh)
  • Fresh install of code works
  • Disabling gradle and using ant. that results in a different error

The log

thanks in advance

P.S. I have just noticed that my plugin menu doesn’t exist too

I have no idea what I did but it works perfectly now… if it happens again I’ll be back!
