Running Gradle task 'assembleDebug'...                             31.5s
Exception: Gradle task assembleDebug failed with exit code 1

Open the file android/app/src/build.gradle and increase compileSdkVersion:

android {
    compileSdkVersion 31

In our case, it was 30 when the error was occurring, we increase it to compileSdkVersion 31, the error is solved. You can increase it but 1 each time until your error is not solved. 

Or, identify the package or plugin which is creating the problem, and know which compileSdkVersion is needed for and Change the version value according to it.

Now Hit, the command in terminal to clear build cache:

flutter clean

In this way, you can solve version code errors in Flutter Android App.
