BitBucket builds for Android are failing

I have been using BitBucket pipelines for sometime now and suddenly from yesterday builds have been failing with the following error

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred evaluating project ':app'.
> Failed to apply plugin ''.
> Android Gradle plugin requires Java 11 to run. You are currently using Java 1.8.
You can try some of the following options:
- changing the IDE settings.
- changing the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
- changing `` in ``.
I am using Gradle version 7 / java 1.8 in my local machine builds and I am able to get the build done successfully. Not certain what is going wrong on the server builds.

`mingc/android-build-box` doesn't seem to have jenv install but it does have java 11. I solved it by prefixing $PATH with the java 11 path and setting JAVA_HOME as first steps in my pipeline.



             - export PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64/bin:$PATH

             - export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64/

Thank you @Jonas E , that solved my issue :-)

Still a bit mean that they mention jenv in the docs of the docker image, but then it is not recognized properly...

This happened to me to, after I've upgraded the projects gradle from 4.2.2 to 7.0.1


Any solutions yet?

I am using:

# Using docker image from:
image: mingc/android-build-box:latest

And they say with jenv you can change the version. But in my pipeline script "jenv" is not a recognized command and Bitbucket pipelines fails with:

+ jenv local 11

bash: jenv: command not found
