Bounty: 50

I am facing this problem while building the project. Below is the stacktrace. I created a new keystore file for release key but didn’t work.

Followed other questions on the forum but nothing worked. Please help.
Android Studio Version – 3.2.1

Edit– Changing the minSdkVersion from 18 to 21 fixed the issue. But not able to figure out the real reason behind this.
