we have been given a private app to deploy to many devices, when trying to upload to private apps sections in the managed google play from sophos mobile apps we receive the error "Upload a new APK file with a different package name" this appl has been given to us by a developer, the devices are Android Enterprise Fully managed devices.
Thanks for reaching out to us.
The errors you're seeing are generated from the Google Play Store. I was able to locate some guidance surrounding this error in the following article. - Upload a new apk file with a different package name” error when trying to add an internal application to Managed Google Play using iFrame method
Kind of depends on what you mean. When you say `one of the sub menus of the package is my name` do you mean one of the packages inside the root package?
If so you can simply rename the package name and release the change.
If, however, your name appears in the manifest file package field.
then you can change the package name, but not release this as the same app on the store. Your only option would be to remove the current app and release another with the new package name.....
Please understand that the app's package name must be globally unique in Google Play (not just unique within your enterprise or Google Play Developer account). Otherwise, you will receive the Upload a new APK file with a different package name error.
