Attempting to package a runtime plugin in 4.20 results in the following error:

 ERROR: System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'D:\Unreal Projects\4.20\PluginTest\TestPlugin\HostProject\Plugins\TestPlugin\Intermediate\Build\Android\UE4\Development\TestPlugin\TestPlugin.precompiled'. 

Full log attached

Regression?: Yes
This did not occur in 4.19

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a new blank C++ project
  2. Create a new blank Plugin
  3. Edit the Plugin's .uplugin file to change it from a Development plugin to a Runtime plugin
  4. If before CL#4160105 (in //UE4/Release-4.20), remove the existing public/private includes in the plugin's build.cs file, otherwise skip this step
  5. Compile the plugin
  6. In the plugin's tab of the editor, use the Package button to attempt to package the plugin.
    Result: The packaging fails
    Expected: The packaging succeeds
