[Failed] Launching on an Android Device - error in opening zip file - UE v4.24.1

[Failed] Launching on an Android Device** - error in opening zip file**

I am following the Android Quick Start guide:…ted/index.html

I had a fresh start, new project. Engine version 4.24.1

Part: 5 - Launching on an Android Device

I have an error: pressing the Launch button in the Editor (after a while).
The error message shows up at PERFORMING FINAL APK PACKAGE OPERATION saying:
Exception in thread “main” error in opening zip file

Attached the log file.

Unfortunately the file exists where it should be:

I have repeated the process again and created a very new project but no luck, had the same error message.

Side note:
The guide text in the 5th part is a bit misleading. It is not a third person example map. The tutorial starts with creating a project with a top down template.
