How Do I Fix This Manifest Merger Issue?

  android, sdk, xml

I tried to run my Unscrambler application, but received an error about the MinSDK not being high enough for the project. This is the error that I received:

Manifest merger failed : uses-sdk:minSdkVersion 19 cannot be smaller than version 21 declared in library [androidx.navigation:navigation-compose:1.0.0-alpha10] AndroidManifest.xml as the library might be using APIs not available in 19
    Suggestion: use a compatible library with a minSdk of at most 19,
        or increase this project's minSdk version to at least 21,
        or use tools:overrideLibrary="androidx.navigation.compose" to force usage (may lead to runtime failures)

My AndroidManifest.xml looks like this right now:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<manifest xmlns:android=""
    package="androidx.navigation.compose" >

        android:targetSdkVersion="30" />


Would this be a simple matter of raising the project’s MinSDk or switching to a lower version library?
