Validation Error: We can't read the package


  • Hope someone has some ideas, cause I'm out. 
    The error (We can't Read the package) doesn't really tell me much.

    I have tried to upload this package for a couple weeks and I did see some information one time about a "username" variable not being valid. I have not be able to reproduce the information about "username" for several days.

    Fishing around I did find something that might be relevant in the AppxManifest.xml with the Publisher="CN=$username$" I don't know if this should be populating or not.

    Using Visual Studio 2013 update 4. (Apache Cordova Template)

    This application is an HTML 5/CSS3, Bootstrap, and AngularJS. I have successfully published this application to iTunes and Google Play. 

    Using directions provided here.

    Build settings  "Device", "Release" and "Windows Phone Universal".
    In visual studio I select PROJECT, STORE, Create app package.

    Yes, I want to upload to the windows phone store.
    NEXT (Account looks correct )
    Selecting app name. App is listed based on the account as I would expect.
    Config: Version Number, Architecture Neutral (Release Windows Phone Universal), Include public symbol files

    File is created:CordovaApp.Phone_1.0.22.0_AnyCPU.appxupload

    Run app cert Kit 3.4: "PASS"
    Details: All "PASS"

    UPLOAD:Validation error: We can't Read the package

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be great...thanks in advance.
