Error running standalone Android bundle SDK 38

I upgraded to SDK 38 with no issues. The app runs in expo app on android with no problems. I built an android bundle and uploaded to the Play store under closed testing. I get an error right away when trying to install the app. I ran expo start --no-dev --minify and downgraded one of my libraries due to a warning that came up, but I still get the same issue after rebuilding. If you have any thoughts on things to check or try please let me know, I am in the dark on how to troubleshoot this app once its built.

java.lang.RuntimeException:
Expo encountered a fatal error:
ReferenceError: Can’t find variable: Expo

Still can’t get this app to install. I’ve tried to run the project in the android studio simulator, but it locks up my computer.
Google has just moved to a new developer console dashboard so I dont know if that could be causing an issue. Ive tried to upload multiple test versions and I get the same error. Cant find variable: Expo. Seems like it should not need the variable Expo once it is built as a standalone app. Here is my ‘expo diagnostics’.
