Build can’t find dependency injection from Foursquare library in Graddle

    Hello guys: I’m using the next scenario for Android native applications development:

    Android Studio 3.6.2
    Graddle plugin 3.6.2
    Graddle version 5.6.4
    Kotlin version 1.3.61

    When I make this dependency injection in my build.graddle

    Implementation 'com.foursquare:foursquare-android-oauth:1.1.0'

    The next class: android.net.ConnectivityManager

    can’t be found in the build process. Or at least it hasn't the expected properties.

    I have implemented the next method to detect internet connection:

    package com.example.ejoauth.networkconnection

    import android.content.Context
    import android.net.ConnectivityManager
    import android.net.NetworkCapabilities

    class NetworkConnectionStatus {

    companion object {

    // This code depends on the target SDK version
    fun isInternetAvailable(context: Context): Boolean {
    var result : Boolean = false
    val connectivityManager: android.net.ConnectivityManager = context.getSystemService(Context.CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE) as android.net.ConnectivityManager
    val network : android.net.Network = connectivityManager.activeNetwork ?: return false // <---- Error
    val nwCap : android.net.NetworkCapabilities = connectivityManager.getNetworkCapabilities(network) ?: return false // <---- Error
    result = when {
    nwCap.hasTransport(NetworkCapabilities.TRANSPORT_WIFI) -> true
    nwCap.hasTransport(NetworkCapabilities.TRANSPORT_CELLULAR) -> true
    nwCap.hasTransport(NetworkCapabilities.TRANSPORT_ETHERNET) -> true
    else -> false
    return result

    During the build process, the next errors are thrown (only appears after "Foursquare" dependency injection)

    D:\clcwork\kotlin\EjOauth\app\src\main\java\com\example\ejoauth\networkconnection\NetworkConnectionStatus.kt: (15, 69): Unresolved reference: activeNetwork D:\clcwork\kotlin\EjOauth\app\src\main\java\com\example\ejoauth\networkconnection\NetworkConnectionStatus.kt: (16, 79): Unresolved reference: getNetworkCapabilities

    It seems like "Foursquare" libraries overwrite some clases or packages with another implementation in which attributes or methods are lost. The only solution I have found so far is not implementing this method “NetworkConnectionStatus.isInternetAvailable”. But this is not a solution. As you can see, I'm indicating packages explicitly in my code.

    Can you help me, please?

    Thak you in advance.

    (Sorry but I do not find how to indent code in this editor)
