appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.3.0.apk' does not exist or is not accessible

I recently upgrade from appium 1.14 to appium 1.16. After the update I am getting this error:

Original error: An unknown server-side error occurred while processing the command. Original error: The file at 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\appium\node_modules\appium-uiautomator2-server\apks\appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.3.0.apk' does not exist or is not accessible Build info: version: '3.141.59', revision: 'e82be7d358', time: '2018-11-14T08:17:03' System info: host: 'desktopName', ip: 'ipaddress', os.name: 'Windows 10', os.arch: 'amd64', os.version: '10.0', java.version: '1.8.0_211' Driver info: driver.version: AndroidDriver

The problem is that it is looking for appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.3.0.apk but appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.3.0.apk doesn't exist.

After viewing the 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\appium\node_modules\appium-uiautomator2-server\apks\ folder I see that the apk version is different. The apk that is in that location is appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.5.2.apk

If I set my capability as caps.setCapability("automationName", "uiautomator1"); I don't get the error and it works. However, uiautomator1 is deprecated and uiautomator2 is now default with 1.16.

    I got this error when I update appium and tried to run the automation before stop all appium services and nodes of selenium grid (who was configured with appium 1.15.1). After restart all services (including the appium-nodes in selenium grid) and tried again, I was able to execute the tests.

    On your environment, did appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.3.0.apk exist? If not, please make sure npm install first since the most possible case is missing the apk by npm install or a security software lock/remove the app.

    appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.3.0.apk does not exist on my environment. When I check I only see appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.5.2.apk. But it is looking for appium-uiautomator2-server-v4.3.0.apk.

    Hm, I guess your uia2 driver has the previous files because of npm cache etc. Could you uninstall your local appium once and reinstall it?

    Please remove the local dependencies and re-install appium first for this kind of error. Let us know if this does not resolve the issue.
