In creating the project when you're asked for a minimum SDK and target SDK, The dropdowns will have both numeric versions and one alphabetical version (currently N). The alphabetical version a preview of an upcoming Android release, which is for delevopers to try out and test new features, while the numbered ones are the actual released versions of the OS. You want to stick with the numbered versions. There should be versions recommended by Ben in the video, and they can be edited in the app's build.gradle file instead of starting a new project from scratch.
Your the best :), I managed to resolve the issue following your advise. I can now continue with the lessons.
