Could not resolve project after upgrading 5.2.1 -> 5.3

I’m having issues with my local dependencies after this upgrade. I’ve been trying to read the release notes, but I can’t find anything that explains why this upgrade should break this feature?

This is how I refer to my projects:
implementation project(’:util’)

Any thougts?

For some reason adding ‘sourceCompatibility’ to build.gradle of the util project solve this issue.
