[Android] Unity prompts for an update to API Level 36 when API Level 34 is used to build for Android



Reproduction steps:
1. Open the attached project “SDKProject”
2. Select API Level 34 in “Project Settings/Player/Other settings/Target API Level”

5. Observe the build process

Expected result: The building process proceeds without asking for an Update to API Level 36
Actual result: Build failure

    Changing the AndroidTargetSdkVersion and the AndroidMinSdkVersion properties in the ProjectSettings.asset from 36 to 34 worked for me.

    Same problem on 2022.3.5f1 solution given by fenriquez is not valid. On sdk manager all is instaaled (AndroidTargetSdkVersion 34...) no one solved this?

    Why are you ignoring the problem?
    When you click Update Android SDK, the change in AndroidTargetSdkVersion: ** is not applied, and the value is returned to 36

    I work through the admin profile
    Unity 22.3.5f1

    I have same issue with Unity version 2022.3.4f1 when I target android API level 34, it tries to install API Level 36 (which doesn't even exist at all), I have tried previous suggested workaround by FENRIQUEZ by changing AndroidTargetSdkVersion from 36 to 34 in ProjectSettings.asset, but that doesn't help it looks like Unity just generates new PorjectSettings.asset file during build and overrides this value back to 36, so there is still on going issue with this. I'm working on MacMini M1 if that's any relevant..

    In the file ProjectSettings.asset exist the AndroidTargetSdkVersion property with the value 36, change for 34 save file, and build.
