with this grpc dependencies


I even decompiled the final jar and the method does exist, I don't know where to even start looking.

Thanks in advance :)

This indicates that somehow the project is using Java generated code that is too new for the protobuf runtime. GeneratedMessageV3.isStringEmpty was added relatively recently, so if the runtime library is too old then it won't be present. Version 3.19.2 is quite recent, so that should be fine, but the fact that you're getting the error anyway suggests to me that there must be an old runtime being used somewhere.
