Hi @swpalmer,

This looks like it might be some kind of permissions issue (GRADLE_USER_HOME read-only or wrong user?) that is hidden in the noise.

Could you run the build again with --scan and see if that generates a build scan?

I think that is the issue… I’m just clueing in now to the fact that the samples directory is not world writable. It was just the real error being hidden as you say.
