Gradle Build Failed in Android Studio (Cannot read testArtifacts.bin from cache)

There is no error in the code. But the build fails with the following error:

Error:Could not read entry ':app:packageDebug' from cache taskArtifacts.bin (/Users/sibidharan/Developer/Android Dev/Karpagam/.gradle/2.10/taskArtifacts/taskArtifacts.bin).
> (no error message)

I am using Android Studio 2.0 Preview 9 on OS X 10.11.3

    Removing the project-local .gradle folder did it for me. It was then recreated during the next build and all was fine again.


    This answer helps.

    Gradle cache locates at

    • On Windows: %USER_HOME%.gradle/caches
    • On Mac/Unix: $HOME/.gradle/caches/

    You can browse to these directory and manually delete it or run

    rm -rf $HOME/.gradle/caches/

    on Unix or OS X system.
