You need to use a different version code for your APK because you already have one with version code 1


#1

I get this error when I try to upload a new version of my android apk to the Google Play Store

You need to use a different version code for your APK because you already have one with version code 1.

I tried editing my config.xml and that did not do the trick. Here is my config.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<widget id="com.ionicframework.swe2702149" 
version="0.0.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" 
xmlns:cdv="http://cordova.apache.org/ns/1.0"
android-versionCode="2"

How do I update the android version?


#2

in your config.xml change the version=“0.0.x” variable

every time you submit a new apk to the playstore you need to increase it’s value


#3

Try to change platforms/android/androidManifest.xml

update
android:versionCode="502" android:versionName="0.5.2"

with your version… every upload increase it.
after that… build again and upload to play store
