This App Bundle contains Java/Kotlin code

I am getting this error while uploading my Xamarin Forms' android app to the Google Play Console.

This App Bundle contains Java/Kotlin code, which might be obfuscated. We recommend you upload a deobfuscation file to make your crashes and ANRs easier to analyze and debug

How can I fix it please?
