Am new to fastlane, when I write the command for deploy the app to internal test its show me the following error:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    Execution failed for task ‘:app:validateSigningRelease’.

    Keystore file ‘/Users/rooh/.gradle/daemon/5.1.1/keystore.jks’ not found for signing config ‘externalOverride’.

  • Try:
    Run with –stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with –info or –debug option to get more log output. Run with –scan to get full insights.

  • Get more help at

Deprecated Gradle features were used in this build, making it incompatible with Gradle 6.0.
Use ‘–warning-mode all’ to show the individual deprecation warnings.

It seems that the error because the location of the keystore, I already put the keystore in app file of the project, I did that in other project and its work fine, but in this I dont know why its not working

I also tried to change the keystore location but still

this lane in fastfile:

desc "Deploy a new internal version to the Google Play Store"
lane :internal do
gradle(task: "clean")

  task: "assemble",
  build_type: "Release",
  print_command: false,
  properties: {
    "" => "keystore.jks",
    "" => "*****",
    "android.injected.signing.key.alias" => "alias",
    "android.injected.signing.key.password" => "*****"


changelog = prompt(
text: "Changelog: ",
multi_line_end_keyword: "END"

  track: "internal",
  apk: lane_context[SharedValues::GRADLE_APK_OUTPUT_PATH].to_s
upload_to_play_store(track: "internal")


As @Rooh Al-mahaba says, I had to supply the complete filepath as the value for "".

Also, ~/ didn’t work; I needed to explicitly spell out the full filepath.
