error: [Dagger/MissingBinding] *.AuthRepository cannot be provided without an @Provides-annotated method

  android, dagger-hilt, kotlin, mvvm, repository

I tried to create a registration using MVVM + Repository pattern with DI, and I used @ViewModelInject and everything was OK, but now @ViewModelInject is deprecated and I changed @ViewModelInject to @HiltViewModel + @Inject constructor() and faced with the error: [Dagger/MissingBinding] *.AuthRepository cannot be provided without an @Provides-annotated method. I tried to add a @Provides annotation for the register function in the interface but faced with another error

Execution failed for task ‘:app:kaptDebugKotlin’.

A failure occurred while executing org.jetbrains.kotlin.gradle.internal.KaptExecution
java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException (no error message)
