When I try to run flutter app on vs code. I get this error:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* Where:
Build file '/home/aman/Desktop/arjun_malhotra/flutter_Projects/isolates_demonstration/android/app/build.gradle' line: 24

* What went wrong:

     You can try some of the following options:
       - changing the IDE settings.
       - changing the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
       - changing `org.gradle.java.home` in `gradle.properties`.

Build time:   2022-02-08 09:58:38 UTC
Revision:     f0d9291c04b90b59445041eaa75b2ee744162586

Kotlin:       1.5.31
Groovy:       3.0.9
Ant:          Apache Ant(TM) version 1.10.11 compiled on July 10 2021
JVM:          13.0.7 (Private Build 13.0.7+5-Ubuntu-0ubuntu120.04)
OS:           Linux 5.4.0-146-generic amd64

But I dont see my JVM pointing to 1.8 version. How do I resolve this? enter image description here Also I dont see any gradle option from where I can change version.

Hope this helps!

Based on the error message, the Android Gradle plugin requires Java 11 to run, but you are currently using Java 1.8. You can try one of the following options:

  1. Change the IDE settings You can try changing the settings in your IDE (e.g. Android Studio or VS Code) to use Java 11 instead of Java 1.8.

  2. Change the JAVA_HOME environment variable Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the Java 11 installation directory. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Determine the path to the Java 11 installation directory.
  • Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the path of the Java 11 installation directory.

For example, on Linux, you can set the JAVA_HOME environment variable by running the following command in a terminal:

export JAVA_HOME=/path/to/java-11

On Windows, you can set the JAVA_HOME environment variable by following these steps:

  • Open the Control Panel.
  • Click System and Security.
  • Click System.
  • Click Advanced system settings.
  • Click Environment Variables.
  • Under System Variables, click New.
  • In the Variable Name field, enter JAVA_HOME.
  • In the Variable Value field, enter the path to the Java 11 installation directory.
  1. Change org.gradle.java.home in gradle.properties Set the org.gradle.java.home property in the gradle.properties file to point to the Java 11 installation directory. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Determine the path to the Java 11 installation directory.
  • Open the gradle.properties file in a text editor.
  • Add the following line to the file:
org.gradle.java.home=/path/to/java-11

Replace /path/to/java-11 with the actual path to the Java 11 installation directory.

After making one of these changes, try running the flutter app again and see if the issue is resolved.
