Android Build Failure - PDFbox

My project is on a windows machine and it errors out after using the PDFbox library.

> Lint found errors in the project; aborting build.

  Fix the issues identified by lint, or add the following to your build script to proceed with errors:
  android {
      lintOptions {
          abortOnError false

  The first 3 errors (out of 10) were:
  D:\a\printola-v3\printola-v3\app\build.gradle: Error: commons-logging defines classes that conflict with classes now provided by Android. Solutions include finding newer versions or alternative libraries that don't have the same problem (for example, for httpclient use HttpUrlConnection or okhttp instead), or repackaging the library using something like jarjar.

Hi @darkabhi ,

The error should be caused by your gradle code but not related to Github Actions. 

Please follow below tickets for a try:

It’s recommended to raise the query here gradle topic related for more help.
