Failed to parse XML in AndroidManifest.xml Message: expected start or end tag
Got the subject error in Android Studio after using Refactor | Migrate To Android X. Upon looking at the line number referenced by this message, I saw that Android Studio was highlighting a blank area that seemed to have invalid characters. Resolved this error by backspacing through all the affected XML statements and allowing the return key to format the next line.
