Environment Information : This error could be seen on any version of CPPM.
Cause : The exact error capture is seen below.
" Uploaded file is invalid: does not have the meta file or unrecognized type or does not have a valid signature"
This error may be seen when we try to manually upload the upgrade package to CPPM.
