Upgrading from maven plugin to maven-publish failing

Hello,
We’re upgrading from Gradle 5.2 → 7.2 which forced us to use the maven-publish plugin instead of the maven plugin.
I’ve done a lot of debugging and article researching as well as making sure that I am following the documentation specified in the gradle docs for maven-publish plugin but still seem to be getting the same error. There are no surrounding errors while building the release with the --debug flag.

There are a couple things I don’t quite understand.

  • What is happening to the apache wagon deployerJars. In some legacy documentation I see it being utilized, but not sure how to do the conversion for it with maven-publish plugin.
  • Why do I keep getting this error below despite following the documentation

The error I’m getting is:

 org.gradle.internal.typeconversion.UnsupportedNotationException: Cannot convert extension 'publishing' to a task.
The following types/formats are supported:
  - A String or CharSequence task name or path
  - A Task instance
  - A TaskReference instance
  - A Buildable instance
  - A TaskDependency instance
  - A Provider that represents a task output
  - A Provider instance that returns any of these types
  - A Closure instance that returns any of these types
  - A Callable instance that returns any of these types
  - An Iterable, Collection, Map or array instance that contains any of these types

Previous gradle code for uploadArchives:

configurations {
    deployerJars
    integrationTestCompile.extendsFrom testCompile
    integrationTestRuntime.extendsFrom testRuntime
    testImplementation.extendsFrom compileOnly
    jacocoAgent
}
dependencies{
    ...
    deployerJars 'org.apache.maven.wagon:wagon-ssh:2.2'
}
artifacts {
    archives sourcesJar
}

uploadArchives {
    repositories {
        mavenDeployer {
            configuration = configurations.deployerJars
            repository(url: "${repoUrl}") {
                authentication(userName: omitted, password: omitted)
            }
        }
    }
}

afterReleaseBuild.dependsOn uploadArchives

What does --stacktrace say where the error comes from?

Going to try this again. Getting filtered out by the spam bot. Here’s the stacktrace

I’ll post if I get it working with 7.x in a later attempt
