[Android] Kotlin + Dagger2: Unresolved reference AppComponent when generating signed APK

I was having this error when deploying a signed APK of my App, running and debugging were both working fine.
After two hours fighting this issue, this was the solution


kapt {
generateStubs = true

dependencies {

I placed the “kapt” block before the “dependencies” one and after “android”. Now I can deploy signed APKs
