Unable to publish to play store, even if "Shipping" packaging is selected
When packaging for android and setting packaging setting and project setting to "shipping" you get this error when trying to upload to play store

Ok i did get some headway, maybe i'm missing the documentation/couldnt find it but.
===In order to "DISTRIBUTE" you must configure UE4 to "sign" your app other wise it will keep compiling in debug mode! ===
Note for developers: So this is what i noticed when trying to upload to play store:
Shipping + Distribution = Debug error
Development + Distribution = Not signed (what i expected), but atleast compiling it without debug mode
I knew it would need to be signed but, the fact it wasn't recompiling a new apk/notifying me that it needed to be signed i figured i missed some other config/proper to turn of debug.
Now for others who have this problem:
Follow this guide by google (with the command line). http://developer.android.com/tools/publishing/app-signing.html#cert
You can find this file to configure by going to Project Settings -> Android ->open manifest folder "Signing config" and fill out / follow the directions. It will not only force it out of debug mode... but it will be signed aswell ;-P ready to throw up to the play store
Open File > Package Project > Packaging Settings, expand the "Project" section, and enable the "For Distribution" option. Repackage your project and see if that allows you upload. Thanks.
