Please help me with this bug. I just updated my Android Studio to the latest stable version, it worked well but few hours later it gave these errors. I have cleaned, built and invalidated and restarted, restarted my system, all to no avail.

 FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

 * What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugResources'.
> Android resource linking failed
Output:
