I cannot state enough how it warms my heart to read this and others replies (only because masochists enjoy company). I have a small android project that I normally have to update once a year, and then forget for the next eleven months. Every time Android Studio updates, the project fails to build again. I then spend more time trying to get the original project to build than I actually spend on development after the build is fixed. The only thing consistent in this entire thing is that it always fails!
