~2 days ago, our android builds started failing everytime with a NPE from Gradle.
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception. [19:55:35]: ▸ * What went wrong: [19:55:35]: ▸ A problem occurred configuring project ':app'. [19:55:35]: ▸ > java.lang.NullPointerException (no error message) [19:55:35]: ▸ * Try: [19:55:35]: ▸ Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace.

We changed the build image in our circle.yml back a revision to circleci/android@sha256:764f53c952555db74d1227c261704460cf5dbd5d04983ed6c32ca8d4c2c71de2 and our builds are working again.
Anyone have insights?
My guess is the switch to jdk8-slim for the base image broke things…
