Unresolved reference: R


Unlike other posts from here (R is unresolved for example), my project compiles fine.

There is no Gradle error, I can compile and run on my phone without any warnings, however, IntelliJ Ultimate shows any usage of the R class in red with a “Unresolved reference: R” error. Even code completion works.

I don’t really know where this could come from, so here’s some info about the system:
Debian 9
IntelliJ Ultimate 2018.3.4 with bundled Android Support plugin (the latest version I believe)
The project was created through the wizard. The only modifications I made to the config is to change the Kotlin dependancy from the JRE7 to the JDK7 version:
implementation "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:$kotlin_version"
