I'm developing an android game using construct 2. I added Phonegap Admob plugin recently and tried to build the app. This is what I'm getting.
There are no plugin tags in the xml file but still I'm having problem with the build. All the other plugins were successfully installed.
You check the details in the file

I'm not sure where it went wrong. Please Help.
This is an incorrect error message that we found can appear with some plugins. A fix has been identified, but that fix will not show up in the build system for another week or two. Despite the bad error message, the build system is having troubles with the plugin you are trying to use, so you may have to experiment with the specific version of the plugin or find another that does not cause this problem.
Thanks for the response. It is a long time to get the update. I planned to release the game this weekend. It's final stages of testing. I don't know what to do now. I will see whether I could get anyother plugin.
You can try building with PhoneGap Build or Cordova CLI. See the basic steps here > https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-xdk/topic/685326#comment-1885441 < to convert your project into one that can be used with Cordova and use this script > https://github.com/xmnboy/xdk-to-cli < to help with that process.
I somehow managed to resolve the issue but now I'm facing a new issue. I'm getting the below error.

You've got two plugins that are competing with each other. Both are trying to pull in the 'com.google.android.gms' library. You'll have to remove the one you do not need, or modify one of the offending plugins to make it work. You'll have to experiment with removing plugins, one at a time, and rebuilding, to figure out which ones are causing the problem (or you can inspect the plugin.xml file of the plugins you are using to find which ones reference that library).
Now I'm facing new issue. Also I update to new Intel XDK version.

I cannot remove facebook plugin. I need it.
Is there a way to settle this?
I have never seen this error before and am not clear on how or why this is happening. This is the page that is being referenced by the error message that is provided > https://developer.android.com/studio/build/manifest-merge.html < in the log snippet you provided. I recommend you try building with PhoneGap Build. See the export tool on the Build tab in 3900. If you cannot build it with PGB, you'll have to give Cordova CLI a try.
Note that the deprecation of our build system means it will be retired and there will be no more significant upgrades to the build system and support will be limited to keeping it running through the end of June. Now is a good time to migrate to using PhoneGap Build or Cordova CLI as your build system.
My suspicion is this is being caused by plugin conflicts. You'll have to do some investigation to figure out which plugins are conflicting and decide which of the two you are going to keep and which of the two you will replace or get rid of.
Hi, I exported my project to Cordova CLI just as you suggested. I could successfully build the .apk. I received an unsigned .apk. I tired to manually sign the .apk but I'm receiving "jarsigner error java.security.signatureexception: private key algorithm is not compatible with signature algorithm". I used the same .keystore generated by XDK. I cannot change my .keystore now as I already uploaded my app to Play Store.
What should I do. Please help.
These are the most precise instructions > http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/6.x/guide/platforms/android/index.html#signing-an-app < in the Cordova CLI docs page. Likewise, this SO post is very helpful > http://stackoverflow.com/a/34781068/2914328 < as an example.
Please also read the export docs, which point to the same information > https://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/docs/build-xdk-app-with-phonegap-cordova-cli <
