Apache Cordova apk is invalid

In Visual Studio I have generated an apk file following these instructions.

Then I want to install the apk like it is explained here, and adb install gives the error "INSTALL_FAILED_INVALID_APK", without any more details.

I have searched a lot and tried many things, in config.xml I put version code = 100, min api version = 14, max api version = 26, target api = 23. What can I do to solve this problem?

The only way to solve this problem was to use a newer version of Android device. In this way when generating the apk in Visual Studio the apk is no more invalid.
