Here is the ionic.config,json

    "app_id": "soko360app",
    "type": "ionic-angular"

This is not how this works. This should be an app ID from and being set when you call ionic link (which ionic upload does in the background). Delete that line, run ionic link again and it should fix itself.

i did ionic link then this came…

√ Looking up your apps - done!
? Which app would you like to link
  Create a new app
> Nevermind

and i have gone to and i have created an app

Great. The command also told you to run it again, right? This time it should display a list of projects in your account.

Yap it worked!! Thank you for the help, it is just uploading and will contact you in case of any errors.
