[Localization] Build fails and error is thrown when building on Android Platform with certain Locale codes and Android App info

Package: Localization


How to reproduce:
1. Create a new Unity project
2. Open the Package Manager (Window->Package Manager)
3. Install the Localization package via git URL ("+"->Add package from git URL...->com.unity.localization->Add)
4. Open the Localization settings (Edit->Project Settings...->Localization)
5. Create Localization Settings
6. Generate zh-Hans and zh-Hant locales (Locale Generator->Select "zh-Hans" and "zh-Hant" Code Locales->Gnerate Locales)
7. Add Android->App Info to the Metadata
8. Open the Build Settings (File->Build Settings...)
9. Switch to the Android Platform
10. Build

Expected results: The project builds successfully
Actual results: A "Invalid resource directory name" error window pops up, the build fails

Reproducible with: 0.11.0-preview (2019.4.29f1, 2020.3.17f1, 2021.1.18f1), 1.0.0-pre.10 (2019.4.29f1, 2020.3.17f1, 2021.1.18f1, 2021.2.0b9, 2022.1.0a5)
Could not test with: 0.10.0-preview and earlier because the Metadata section did not exist

- This happens with "zh-Hans" and "zh-Hant" codes as well as with "ha-Latn" and "ha-Latn-NG" codes
- The issue is not reproducible when building on Standalone
- The issue is not reproducible when using iOS App Info instead of Android's
- After either multiple atempts or building on diffferent platforms and then again on Android the Android platform will succeed

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 1.0.0):

    Confirmed no longer reproducible with:
    Version: 2022.1.0a9.1212
    Revision: trunk 5a1ba9fbc92d
    Built: Fri, 10 Sep 2021 03:09:36 GMT

    Tested with Localization 1.0.0 and Samsung Galaxy S9 (Android 10)

    Notes: Tested building with locales codes that included "Hans", "Hant", "Latn", "Cyrl", "Arab", "valencia" as they were mentioned to cause issues in the fix PR.
