Unable to instantiate appComponentFactory


#1

When I try to implement RecyclerView following the book’s directions, I face this error.

2018-12-26 23:33:51.579 1881-1881/? E/LoadedApk: Unable to instantiate appComponentFactory

I could not get any solution for this when I scoured the Internet. I don’t know, based on my reading so far, what appComponentFactory is. Have any one of the readers faced such problem? Kindly help me out.
