Unable to locate adb

Execution failed for task ‘:app:packageDebug’.

A failure occurred while executing com.android.build.gradle.tasks.PackageAndroidArtifact$IncrementalSplitterRunnable
com.android.ide.common.signing.KeytoolException: Failed to read key AndroidDebugKey from store “C:\Users\Malvika Mishra.android\debug.keystore”: Short read of DER length

  • Try:
    Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

Pls tell me how to get rid of this error

What has the actual error to do with adb that you mention in the topic?
That error usually means, that your what you try to parse is not in the expected format.
In this case it tries to read debug.keystore as DER encoded and it cannot.
Maybe it is not in the expected format or it is corrupted?
