What you are doing here is called casting. You can't convert an integer to a String value like this. This is the correct way to do it

String intAsString = String.valueOf(randomNumber);

or

String intAsString = String.format("%d", randomNumber); // where "%d" is a placeholder

nop again throws error :(
