Gradle Native GraalVM build

I’m trying to build a native image for a simple Kotlin app using GraalVM, I’m using the com.palantir.graal gradle plugin which downloads and extracts GraalVM, but during the native image build I get the following error:

Has anyone tried to build a native image for a Java application using CircleCI?

My project:
