Android Studio Convert Java to Kotlin not working

I was just trying to convert my old android project which is in JAVA language to kotlin but encounter and error:

Build was configured to prefer settings repositories over project repositories but repository ‘MavenRepo’ was added by build file ‘app\build.gradle.

Then after lot’s of research and solution by developer on stackoverflow I finally found out the 100% working solution on Android Convert Java File to Kotlin Not working.


Solution

You need to update settings.gradle

Replace this line

repositoriesMode.set(RepositoriesMode.FAIL_ON_PROJECT_REPOS)

with this

repositoriesMode.set(RepositoriesMode.PREFER_SETTINGS)

Refer below screenshot for easily understanding

Now hit on sync now, and try to convert file by following above steps.
