[ERROR] An error occurred while running subprocess cordova.

        cordova build android exited with exit code 1.

        Re-running this command with the --verbose flag may provide more information.

I clicked on the link to android docs about "Learn how to resolve this issue" and after read it I looked for which plugin contained so it is in cordova-plugin-mauron85-background-geolocation 3.0.1 "CDVBackgroundGeolocation" and at the app's folder So I proceed it to delete that file on the app and the apk was generated, but with a problem, after using the app for some minutes or just send it to background it returns to and old version(Whaaat?), a co-worker build the project without errors, I asked him for his setup like, platform, node version and build tools version, I remove the node modules and platform but still is showing the error.

I think that the background-geolocation plugin is the problem, but this is the list of plugins installed in the project
