Exception or error:

I am following a tutorial (link) to upload images to Firebase database but am getting the below error. I rechecked the gradle dependencies and also enabled multidex support but error still remains

Please tell what I’m doing wrong here!

How to solve:

now here is the problem, you are using different versions in dependencies of gradle
So change this

compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:10.0.0'
testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
compile 'com.firebase:firebase-client-android:2.3.1'
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:9.2.1'
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-storage:9.2.1'
compile 'com.android.support:multidex:1.0.0'

to this

compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:10.0.1'
testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
compile 'com.firebase:firebase-client-android:2.3.1'
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:10.0.1'
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-storage:10.0.1'
compile 'com.android.support:multidex:1.0.0'

one more thing is that now com.firebae:firebase-client-android is deprecated so you need to replace it with com.google.firebase:firebase-database:10.0.1 and here is the documentation for that https://firebase.google.com/support/guides/firebase-android

###

If you are seeking solution for react-native project, make sure there is same version used among different modules and replace “+” with some latest available version.

I have faced similar problem while implementing native ad and killed almost 4 hours…

At last i have figured out that there are different com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads version in different module(‘17.1.1’ and ‘12.0.0’).

After changing all version to 17.1.1 it solved my problem.

###

Most of the time the problem is in the gradle. I had a similar problem until I changed firebase-(storage/auth/database) build gradle for module app to be the same for e.g.
( com.google.firebase:firebase-storage:16.1.0,com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:16.1.0, com.google.firebase:firebase-database:16.1.0)
