    WenyanZhang-MSFT, the error message is as noted above: "Publishing Failed. The Target ValidateAppStoreBundle does not exist in the project."

    Xcode version is 13.4.1. I am unable to run Xcode 14 yet since .net Maui has not bee updated to work with the newest version.
    Visual Studio for Mac version 17.4 (build 1583). See https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/issues/15954#issuecomment-1253144541

    Error occurs when trying to upload to App store after Archiving from VS. I note that I can deploy to Appstore from the command line by building withdotnet publish -f:net6.0-ios -c:Release and then uploading with transporter.
