Android Gradle CompilationFailedException after Android Studio Update

I’m getting the following error when I build my project:

Java compiler:

Caused by: org.gradle.api.internal.tasks.compile.CompilationFailedException: Compilation failed; see the compiler error output for details.

This is my project level build.gradle:

buildscript {
repositories {
google()
jcenter()
mavenCentral()
}
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.1.0'
classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.1.1'
}
}
allprojects {
repositories {
google()
jcenter()
maven {
url "https://maven.google.com"
}
maven {
url "https://jitpack.io"
}
}
}
task clean(type: Delete) {
delete rootProject.buildDir
}

Does anybody know how to fix this?

I solved this with the suggestion from @CommonsWare to go in the Build view’s second toolbar button down from the top which toggles between the tree view and the raw Gradle console output. The error showed that this was caused by using a deprecated view, ArticleListAdapter. Removing this fixed the error.

The other warning was fixed by changing compile to implementation in the App level build.gradle.
