Kivy VM Buildozer Command Failed

I recently learned about kivy and tried to make a very simple little app just to test it. To try it out properly I used the kivy launcher but also felt compelled to try and compile it to an APK for my android phone. So I downloaded virtual box and installed linux mint on it. After installing things like java, cython and all that good stuff I tried to run “buildozer android debug”. It keeps returning this bug though and I can’t seem to figure out why. Any input is appreciated, thanks!

Command failed: /usr/bin/python3 -m pythonforandroid.toolchain create --dist_nam
e=vibapplication --bootstrap=sdl2 --requirements=kivy --arch armeabi-v7a --copy-
libs --color=always --storage-dir=/media/sf_python/python projects/kivy_learn/vi

Could you try installing Buildozer VM from this link

also you may follow

make sure you run “buildozer init” inside your project folder and also you have file which is your program file and then run “buildozer android debug”

Note: you may also update the buildozer.spec file as per your requirement.

requirement = kivy # this should be by default
