Welcome back,
I have not yet updated Android SDK + Required Resources, so far I could compile all applications on old sources without major problems.
When I update the Android SDK, I will let you know if it helped.
Thanks to everyone for now.

It seems the Android SDK update helped. And I admit it works on both Java 8 and 11, although I prefer to work on Java 8. Moreover, everything works for me regardless of the JDK or JDK

Also, the case seems to be closed :)
Thanks to everyone for your help.
