Try to update to 4.25.1.
I had this error too and is something about UE4.25 using Gradle5.4 that depends on JDK8, if you install (or rollback to) JDK8 it will fix this error but will cause other problems.

still happening

In project settings => android. Try to set only x64.

fixed. I needed to set up the environment variables. such as Android sdk home, ant home etc from the tutorial

Can you please attach a screenshot of your environment variables?

Ok. So the issue here is that UE does not use the correct version of java. I have java11, java14 from oracle that mess things up.

UE must use correct home directories. (!!! if you have /etc/environment set it does not necceseraly mean that UE uses this directories)
