Gradle crash while building (only in command line)

I have a problem in building with Gradle in Android Studio. I hope it’s the correct place to get help.
I’m posted the question on Stackoverflow too (

I’ve just upgraded to AndroidStudio 3.4 and Gradle 5.1.1. Gradle Android plugin is 3.4.0 (I’ve also updated some libraries versions used by the project)

Now, I’m able to launch any build command from the Android Studio menu. I’m also able to launch the App onto the device. The App works correctly.

But any gradle command that I launch by command line, even the simple

gradlew help

crashes with the next message:

Creating configuration androidTestFreeDebugAnnotationProcessor

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred configuring project ':app'.

Any Invalidate/Restart or reboot does not give help.

Any suggestion?
