Describe the bug Android app build fails upgrading to capacitor v3

To Reproduce Following the upgrade steps here:

I installed the alpha release of this plugin: package.json: "@capacitor-community/firebase-analytics": "^1.0.0-alpha.0",

I’ve tried

ext {
    minSdkVersion = 21
    compileSdkVersion = 30
    targetSdkVersion = 30
    androidxAppCompatVersion = '1.1.0'       // TRIED keeping 1.1.0 which was working before and tried the recommended 1.2.0. neither work
    androidxCoreVersion =  '1.3.2'
    androidxMaterialVersion =  '1.1.0-rc02'
    androidxBrowserVersion =  '1.3.0'
    androidxLocalbroadcastmanagerVersion =  '1.0.0'
    firebaseMessagingVersion = '21.0.1'
    playServicesLocationVersion =  '17.1.0'
    junitVersion =  '4.13.1'
    androidxJunitVersion =  '1.1.2'
    androidxEspressoCoreVersion =  '3.3.0'
    cordovaAndroidVersion =  '7.0.0'

Android studio output:

.../node_modules/@capacitor-community/firebase-analytics/android/src/main/java/com/getcapacitor/community/firebaseanalytics/ error: cannot access AppCompatActivity
  class file for not found

(hence why I tried downgrading androidxAppCompatVersion

Expected behavior Build to succeed

Hitting the same issue. My current work around is to add implementation "androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.2.0" into the build.gradle dependencies block for the plugin (e.g. \node_modules@capacitor-community\firebase-analytics\android\build.gradle). This gets the build working for me and analytics is now working as it should but obviously isn’t an ideal fix as I have to do it manually after every npm i.

Assuming this is something that needs adding to the plugin?

To get my project up and running in the meantime I’ve forked and added the dependency. If it’s of any use to anyone until a fix goes in feel free to use it 😃

npm i git:// --save

I am looking at the Android Variables, i think you are missing androidxActivityVersion = '1.2.0'

The recommended Variables are

minSdkVersion = 21
compileSdkVersion = 30
targetSdkVersion = 30
androidxActivityVersion = '1.2.0'
androidxAppCompatVersion = '1.2.0'
androidxCoordinatorLayoutVersion = '1.1.0'
androidxCoreVersion = '1.3.2'
androidxFragmentVersion = '1.3.0'
junitVersion = '4.13.1'
androidxJunitVersion = '1.1.2'
androidxEspressoCoreVersion = '3.3.0'
cordovaAndroidVersion = '7.0.0'
