Tried everything, Gradle version not updating from 3.2


I’ve recently moved from publishing my apps using the old .apk straight to google play process to the new Android Studio bundles process. I develop apps using Unity and have absolutely no experience with android or running scripts in java or windows.
For the past week I have been stuck with the “Generating signed Bundle requires you to update the Android Gradle plugin to version 3.2.0 or higher”.
After many many hours looking for a solution and trying basically everything I’m still stuck with the same error.

I don’t know what to do here and I’m really stuck.

Things I’ve tried:

  • Main update gradle docs both here and from the android developer sites.
  • Easy Gradle plugin that updates it to 5.5 - error still persists.
  • Other sites and suggestions

I fear that by going through all of the processes above I may have made unnecessary changes to the programme options. Is there a checklist with screenshot of the latest Android Studio that I could double check against?

Could you please help me solve my issues? This is delaying important updates to my apps.
I really don’t understand why this isn’t a straightforward process of Gradle just updating itself like literally every other programme post 2010. Especially since it appears as a critical step in publishing apps?

Would really appreciate your help as I’m truly lost in this new process and programme world.


Hi all,

If anyone could please suggest for me to at least begin somewhere I would really appreciate it.
Really stuck at the moment :frowning:
