  • I tried to disable Instant Run and to revert to previous versions of the material library but i couldn’t fix the error.
How to solve:

There are several components which are referenced in the material design documentation which aren’t yet in a stable release of the material design library for Android. Try using the alpha version instead.

Add the following to your build.gradle:

dependencies { 
    ...
    implementation 'com.google.android.material:material:1.2.0-alpha02'
}

###

Try to Invalidate Cashes / Restart from Android Studio‘s File menu.
