[ReactNative] Building in Android throws error

When trying to do assembleRelease for Android with Sentry integrated, I get the following error:

Execution failed for task ':app:bundleReleaseJsAndAssetsreleaseSentryUpload'.
> java.lang.NullPointerException (no error message)

* Try:
Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.
