I am trying to debug a dex file in ida pro from an apk file.I set some breakpoint on launcing activity.When I start the proces the application wait for debugger.After some time Ida pro shows this JDWP:error absent_information and breakpoint can not set. The application runs normally.

What is wrong here?

Try debugging on a device that has a less recent API level (try 27 or lower). I remember a similar issue that I resolved by running a not-too-recent Android version via the emulator bundled with Android Studio.
