When Publishing an Android app from Visual Studio and it fails trying to sign the package, the logs and output state the following

There was an error attempting to sign pakage: jarsigner: key associated with [aliasofkeystore] not a private key

Sample app can be provided on request

Hi James,

This typo should be fixed now (cycle 8). In fact, we're using a totally different publishing approach based on the Archive Manager. It's already on the Alpha Channel.

Please give it a try if you have the chance.

Thanks for reporting!

I am also able to reproduce this Issue with stable XVS ( Using the wrong password I am getting same error in output: "Xamarin.VisualStudio.ProgressReport Error: 0 : [2016-08-04 16:34:31.8702] System.Exception: There was an error attempting to sign pakage: jarsigner: key associated with 360logica not a private key"

I also checked the same with Cycle 8 build (, here publishing functionality has totally changed. But if I am using wrong password or alias then I am getting following error "(Inner Exception #0) Xamarin.AndroidTools.AndroidSdkToolException: keytool error: java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect"

Environment Info: https://gist.github.com/danish360/5f6b908189e8aac8621902caaac82803

Please let me know if this is correct error message now.
