RN Release build fails, but debug runs. Error:Execution failed for task ':app:compileReleaseJavaWithJavac'

I have a react-native app that runs perfectly well in debug, but fails on a release build. Running node 16.3.2 inside Windows 11 with react-native 0.63.4

Any thoughts on what to try would be greatly appreciated.

The build error from gradlew assembleRelease is:

> Task :app:compileReleaseJavaWithJavac FAILED

My /android/build.gradle file is as follows:

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.
buildscript {
    ext {
        buildToolsVersion = "29.0.3"
        minSdkVersion = 21
        compileSdkVersion = 30
        targetSdkVersion = 30
    }
    repositories {
        google()
        jcenter()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath("com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.1.0")
        // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
        // in the individual module build.gradle files
    }
}
allprojects {
    repositories {
        mavenLocal()
        maven {
            // All of React Native (JS, Obj-C sources, Android binaries) is installed from npm
            url("$rootDir/../node_modules/react-native/android")
        }
        maven {
            // Android JSC is installed from npm
            url("$rootDir/../node_modules/jsc-android/dist")
        }
        google()
        jcenter()
        maven { url 'https://www.jitpack.io' }
    }
}

and the android/app/build.gradle looks like:

Try declaring the package separately above the imports like this:

package com.hordernit.rightoncourseapp;
import expo.modules.updates.UpdatesDevLauncherController;
import expo.modules.devlauncher.DevLauncherController;
import android.app.Application;
import android.content.Context;
import android.net.Uri;
