Kotlin Error : Could not find org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jre7:1.0.7

Kotlin Programming

Question or issue of Kotlin Programming:

I installed the Kotlin plugin into my app (v. v1.1.1-release-Studio2.2-1) and then selected “Configure Kotlin in Project” I selected compiler and runtime version of 1.0.7. Kotlin updated my Gradle files. Now when I try to build in I get:

I’m not sure what I’m missing here.

How to solve this issue?

Solution no. 1:


implementation "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jre7:$kotlin_version"


implementation "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:$kotlin_version"

Since the version with jre is absolute , just replace and sync the project

Official Documentation here Thanks for the link @ ROMANARMY

Happy Coding 🙂

Solution no. 2:

In Project level build.gradle use only this version

ext.kotlin_version = ‘1.3.31’

Remove other versions

This will only work with the latest version of android studio 3.4

UPDATE: Try to use the latest version of kotlin with latest Android studio to avoid an error.

Solution no. 3:

The split of kotlin-stdlib into kotlin-stdlib-jre7 and kotlin-stdlib-jre8 was only introduced with Kotlin 1.1, that’s why the dependency cannot be resolved, the package version simply does not exist.

It looks like the update to your project files failed at some point and set the Kotlin version to 1.0.7. If this is a new project and there’s nothing holding you back from using 1.1.1, I’d switch to that. Your problem should be gone after doing this.

Solution no. 4:

In “build.gradle” file, change current Kotlin version that line and press synk:

ext.kotlin_version = '1.1.1' 

/// That will look like:

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.

buildscript { ext.kotlin_version = '1.1.1' repositories { jcenter() } dependencies { classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.0' classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:$kotlin_version" // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong // in the individual module build.gradle files } } 

Solution no. 5:

Starting with Kotlin 1.1.2, the dependencies with group org.jetbrains.kotlin are by default resolved with the version taken from the applied plugin. You can provide the version manually using the full dependency notation like:

compile "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib:$kotlin_version" 

If you’re targeting JDK 7 or JDK 8, you can use extended versions of the Kotlin standard library which contain additional extension functions for APIs added in new JDK versions. Instead of kotlin-stdlib, use one of the following dependencies:

compile "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7" compile "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk8" 

Solution no. 6:

A new solution if you use Android Studio 3.2, I solved this issue by added mavenCentral() to build.gradle of the project:

buildscript { ext.kotlin_version = '1.3.0' repositories { mavenCentral() google() jcenter() } dependencies { classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.2.1' classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:$kotlin_version" } } allprojects { repositories { mavenCentral() google() jcenter() } } 

You should add the line as this order, the credited is for this answer

Solution no. 7:

buildscript { **ext.kotlin_version = '1.1.1'** //Add this line repositories { **jcenter()** //Add this line google() } dependencies { // classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.0.1' classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.1.0' // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong // in the individual module build.gradle files } } allprojects { repositories { **jcenter()** //Add this line google() maven { url "https://jitpack.io" } } } 

Solution no. 8:

If you are using Android Studio 3.2 & above,then issue will be solved by adding google() & jcenter() to build.gradle of the project:

repositories { google() jcenter() } 

Solution no. 9:

This is what worked for me:
Using Gradle 4.8.1

buildscript { ext.kotlin_version = '1.1.1' repositories { jcenter() google() } dependencies { classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.1.0'} } allprojects { repositories { mavenLocal() jcenter() google() maven { url "$rootDir/../node_modules/react-native/android" } maven { url 'https://dl.bintray.com/kotlin/kotlin-dev/' } } } 

Solution no. 10:

I have solved this issue using deselection of the Offline work option in Settings

Solution no. 11:

  1. Please check current version of your Kotlin in below path,

    C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\gradle\m2repository\org\jetbrains\kotlin\kotlin-stdlib\1.0.5

change to that version (1.0.5) in project level gradle file.

You can see in your above path does not mentioned any Java – jre version, so remove in your app level gradle file as below,

compile "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib:$kotlin_version" 

Solution no. 12:

build.gradle (Project)
buildScript { ... dependencies { ... classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.0.0-rc01' } } 
... distributionUrl=https\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-6.1.1-all.zip 

Some libraries require the updated gradle. Such as:

androidTestImplementation "org.jetbrains.kotlinx:kotlinx-coroutines-test:$coroutines" 


Solution no. 13:

In case a (transitive) dependency still uses the jre variant of the Kotlin library, you can force the use of the jdk variant with the help of a resolution strategy:

configurations.all { resolutionStrategy { eachDependency { DependencyResolveDetails details -> details.requested.with { if (group == "org.jetbrains.kotlin" && name.startsWith("kotlin-stdlib-jre")) { details.useTarget(group: group, name: name.replace("jre", "jdk"), version: version) details.because("Force use of 'kotlin-stdlib-jdk' in favor of deprecated 'kotlin-stdlib-jre'.") } } } } } 

Solution no. 14:

After fixing the build.gradle version, It started working
4.0.0 to 3.5.0

Solution no. 15:

Reload sdk maybe the problem is solved

Solution no. 16:

Simple Steps:

  1. Click File > Project Structure

  2. Click Dependencies >
    Find and Click org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:1.3.21 (or whatever your current version is)

  3. Under Details > update section, click [update variable][update

  4. Click Ok

Best Regards

Hope this helps!
