Could not get unknown property 'assembleRelease' for project

After updating Android Studio to version 2.2 and the gradle plugin to 2.2.0, I get following error:


Error:(32, 1) A problem occurred evaluating project ':jobdispatcher'.
Could not get unknown property 'assembleRelease' for project ':jobdispatcher' of type org.gradle.api.Project.


The problem is in the build.gradle file of an imported jobdispatcher module:

task aar(dependsOn: assembleRelease)


What changes can I make to fix this?

Note, this issue is very similar to, but still a bit different to, that reported here.

Answer

Move your dependency dependsOn inside your gradle task like shown below:

task aar() << {
    dependsOn 'assembleRelease'
}
