Visual Studio 2017

I have Archived a Release Xamarin Forms app and I am attempting to publish it with the Archive Manager. The app builds, is Archived and is signed, but after upload Google Play responds with "APK is marked as debuggable".

I see no Debug symbol and this app was uploaded last month without any setting changed in between versions.

    in /obj/Release/android/AndroidManifest.xml, the debug is set to true?? My .csproj has no <debugsymbols> so how is it generated if I don't setthat?

       <application android:label="Credential" android:hardwareAccelerated="true" **android:debuggable="true"**

    My .csProj has Release set to no debug either:

    <PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Release|AnyCPU' ">

    Look at this: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/advanced_topics/debuggable_attribute/
    Check your AndroidManifest and your MainApplication.cs, if you have.

    It's a bug in the newest Visual Studio 2017 code.

    seems to have "gone away" with new versions
