When attempting to add a file into a File Bundle the following message pops up in the "Add File" dialog:
File bundle (app.bar) has been rejected. Package ID is required for all .bar file. If this is an upgrade, Package ID must match Package ID in original file bundle.
The app.bar has sucessfully been packaged, signed and ran on tablet as well.

I had a similar error "Package ID already is in use..." and some other server based errors when submitting.
Solution guided by another thread on here was to add an id attribute in the config.xml widget tag:
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets" version="188.8.131.52" id="uniquieID">

Found my error and solution:
The error came about because I've signed the new bar files with new keys (upgraded the computer, and didn't know at the time how to backup/restore the barsigner.db, barsigner.csk and sigtool.p12/author.p12).
And it looks like the App World checks if the upgrades are signed with the same key (sort of reasonable, since App Name is not a strong identifier for an app. Althoug I would prefer if it identified the app by app name/author id or keys)
The solution at this time seems to create completely new product, of course the drawback would be that the old users would not get the new upgrades. So It would be nice if we had functionality to 'gift' a product to a client that has another product.

I have a similar situation - I have restored my .csk and .db files to new computer and have generated a new .p12 file. However, Blackberry's stated in their documentation that this is OK, so I hope this is not the problem.
When I run listmanifest on my bar file, it reports a different Package-Id than the one I specified like this in the blackberry-tablet.xml file (which I copy-pasted from an older bar file):
I get an error when I try to use this value in <widget id> in the config.xml, probably because of the formatting...?
I seem to be able to upload new applications just fine, though, so I would say it's an ID mismatch.
This really needs to be resolved as there is a major usability issue that needs to be fixed for my paying users, so a new release doesn't seem realistic.
Any help appreciated!

I'm hitting the same issue. Reformatted my PC, didn't backup the signing files, and now I cannot submit new updates. This is awful. Going to lose my current customers and reviews that were already posted if I have to release a completely new product!

loll no u wont lose all ur customers
Contact RIM (at one of the many accounts). They'll just delete ur package id in vendor portal. The only drawback is on your next app update, your users will have 2 icons on their home screen instead of 1 as the new updated app will not overwrite./ delete the old one.
