When I try submitting app package with extension .appxupload to store, I get the following error .

Package acceptance validation error: You cannot submit pre-compiled .NET Native packages. Please upload the Store appxupload file and try again. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=797528. 

I have developed the app on visual studio 2015 version14.01.25431.01 update 3. And have followed all the steps from 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/apps/hh454036(v=vs.140) , for creating the package.

According to the error message, you should upload the .appxupload file outside the file folder but it seems you upload the package file which should be used for sideloading.
