I just got this message when submitting a new app to the PlayStore

Your APK is only signed using the APK v1 signature scheme. This will fail to install in versions of Android equal or higher to 11 if the android:targetSdkVersion is set to 30 or higher. Please use apksigner to sign your APK or switch to the Android App Bundle to fix this.

Does anyone know what the deal is here?
