VS2019 V16.9.0 Xamarin Forms Android and iOS solution in GitHub. This is for the Android Release build. iOS fails no Apple machine connected. Android Release build runs to completion with Build succeeded. But Can not sign the apk with out the Archive Manager showing the build. When I look at the Archive location I find the new apk. This was working but now does not. Spent a day reading everything I could find on this and trying different things but no luck. This also starting failing on the previous version of VS. Around this same time I started using GitHub and Git in VS.
Debug builds work on emulator and real devices. I had been building the Release apk local and up loading to App Center to distribute which worked. I am now Release building in App center pulling from GitHub with out any problems and can distribute to devices.
I assume I did something in VS that made this stop working but don't know what it was.
