so I am trying to upload my package that I compiles and build on a machine running 18.04 to Bintray.
It doesn't work. I get a message like this:
Unable to upload files: Could not extract metadata for artifact 'pool/m/myapp/myapp_1.0~bionic1_amd64.deb', content might be malformed.
I tried installing the package and no issues with that. I also tried getting the package information using:
dpkg-deb --build myapp_1.0~bionic1_amd64.deb
and no problem with that either.
This is the command I use to build the package:
dpkg-deb --build myapp_1.0~bionic1_amd64
If I build the package using 16.04 (booted off LiveDVD) and ran the same command, I can upload the .deb without any issues.
I've tried 1 other repo (cannot remember the exact site but it starts with "gem") and I get the same error.
Any ideas on what I could be doing wrong and how to fix it?
