Since getFragmentManager is deprecated. What should we use instead?

getSupportFragmentManager() ended up working for me.

Yes, using the support library Fragment along with the getSupportFragmentManager is the right thing to do. There was a lot of overlap between the two and they didn't want to maintain both so the other one was deprecated.

Thanks for this. It worked for me too. The support libraries are now deprecated so I'm using androidx. Here's the import:

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

Here's the code: dialog.show(getSupportFragmentManager(), "error_dialogue");
