    It's happening on 2018.4.3

    "Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect"

    I'm wrong or this fix should be made on 2018.4.3 too as it is LTS?

    Does anyone know the protocol when an issue is incorrectly marked fixed?

    Confirmed as others have stated. Upgraded to 2019.2.0f1 and this issue still prevents builds.

    Experiencing this issue with 2019.1.5f1. Have been searching forums and trying various supposed solutions without any success. Have had an update for my game for a few weeks now and can't upload any changes because of this error.

    I don't know why exactly, but it is probably connected somehow with insufficient space on disk.
    So I solved this issue by removing files from 'C://' (Had less than 150MB free). that's it.

    Still not fixed, I can open my keystore fine via Java and or keystore explorer (Seperate application) but I always get an invalid password when selecting the keystore via Unity 2019.1.0f2. Dont really want to upgrade to beta to fix this. Any ideas?
