Hey guys,

I'm getting this error while trying to upload my signed release APK to Google Play:

Upload failed
You uploaded an APK with an invalid signature (learn more about signing). Error from apksigner: ERROR: JARSIGNO_MANIFEST: Missing META-INF/MANIFEST.MF

Google isn't being very helpful so I'm turning to you. I'm using Godot 2.1.4 compiled from windows for windows because of a custom module I'm using, so I compile my own release export template for android using JDK 8, NDK 13b, and I've tried switching through many different versions of the SDK though for some reason when I run 'gradlew build' it always tries to revert to build-tools 26 even if I have other versions installed.

Really not sure where to even begin with this, any help is appreciated.

Solved, I ended up re-signing and re-aligning the .apk generated by godot with the apksigner utility.

Could you please send me some more information on how you resolved this? I'm experiencing the same issue, but find your solution a bit too vague. (I'm not sure if you mean create a new keystone, or try and edit the current one - and am not sure how to realign the .all)
