Answer

For some reason my versions of the implementation were not matching

Old Version

implementation 'com.google.dagger:hilt-android:2.36'
kapt 'com.google.dagger:hilt-compiler:2.35.1'

Rolled back to

implementation 'com.google.dagger:hilt-android:2.35'
kapt 'com.google.dagger:hilt-compiler:2.35'
