If you are talking about getting this error in the android Weather app, I had the same problem, and was a result of putting toString() instead of string(), as shown below.

 String jsonData = response.body().string(); 

Thanks for this answer, I finally came across it after 10 minutes of trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. Sure would be nice if Treehouse would actually edit these videos with the little update bubbles that they claimed they would or at the very least put this info in the Teacher's Notes!

Thanks so much mate. I've been struggling with the same thing for a whole day now. I felt like blowing out my brains. Came across this and tried switching out .toString(); with just .string(); and its working now...

Please update these videos Treehouse.
