Google’s pepk-src not working

I’m trying to follow the instructions on the Google Developer’s Console to retrieve my .pem certificate’s private key to use with the Google Play App Signing. Since I’m not using a Java keystore, I tried the advanced instructions, but on executing the file, I get no main manifest attribute, in pepk-src.jar error. What gives? I’m using java version "1.8.0_101".

Answer

The download link they gave is apparently a source jar file, maybe they did that accidentally.

Screenshot from Google Play Console showing the “source” jar file link:

Try to use this jar file (from Google): https://www.gstatic.com/play-apps-publisher-rapid/signing-tool/prod/pepk.jar

Good luck, peace out!
