Here's what you can do to resolve this issue:

  1. Check Version Codes: Make sure that you haven't accidentally assigned a lower version code to the APK you're trying to upload than what's already available on the Google Play Store. Version codes should be unique and should increment with each new release.

  2. Update the Version Code: If you have made changes to your app and this new APK should be the one served to users, you must increment the version code in your AndroidManifest.xml file. Ensure it's higher than the previous version.

  3. Consider the Version Name: While the version code is critical for the system to differentiate between APKs, you should also update the version name to reflect the changes you've made in your app. This helps users understand the significance of the update.

  4. Build and Sign: After updating the version code and version name, rebuild your APK and ensure that it's properly signed with your release key.

  5. Upload Again: Finally, try uploading the newly built and signed APK to the Google Play Developer Console.
