java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jetbrains/kotlin/cli/common/PropertiesKt

When I recently used Idea to create a project based on toklin+gradle+springboot, I always prompt when I execute Sync for the first time: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jetbrains/kotlin/cli/common/PropertiesKt.
I tried completely reinstalling the operating system and it did not solve the problem. I also contacted my friend to try to create a project on his computer, but we all ran into the same problem…

Detailed stack information:

    FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

Please try to use the latest version of Kotlin Gradle plugin 1.4.10 with Gradle 5.4 or later.

Thank you very much for your reply
I don’t know if the “Kotlin Gradle plugin” refers to Idea’s “Kotlin” plugin. If it is, I am sure I have installed the latest version 1.4.10, and my Gradle is also using the latest 6.6.1 . But the problem still exists

I think I need to emphasize that this problem occurs when I create a default project when I install Idea for the first time. Both my Idea and project use the default configuration, and I haven’t made any changes.
This problem should be easily reproduced on any computer, because my friend also encountered this problem

I can’t reproduce it. Please create an issue at http://kotl.in/issue with attached sample project, your IDEA settings zip archive and IDEA logs. We will investigate.

Thank you, I have submitted an issue: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/KT-41983

I have the same issue. I am using the idea Community version.

It looks that the issue is on JDK 15. When I switch back to JDK 8 or JDK 13, the issue is gone.

Thank you so much for telling me about the JDK version
I tested it again and confirmed that this problem occurred on openjdk 15 and 14. When I switched to 11, the problem disappeared.

It seems like a bug in java itself.
The bug was also be backported to java 11 lts

Java 11.0.8.8 nightly on AdoptJDK (2020-07-13) works fine
but
Java 11.0.8.9 nightly on AdoptJDK (2020-07-18) crashed
