Please do not close this issue prematurely.

Please wait until there is an actual fix defined so that we can resolve the issue and not keep posting new issues for the same thing because each thread gets closed.

Please

I also posted on StackOverflow in case CircleCI closes this before we get a resolution:

#4

This configuration got rid of the issue:

Changing from JVM_OPTS: -Xmx3200m to JVM_OPTS: -Xmx2048m was important

version: 2

executors:
  my-executor:
    docker:
      - image: circleci/android:api-28-node
    working_directory: ~/code
    environment:
