I want to cancel the Signed APK for my app so I can correct the name of the file and resign it

I made a mistake in my keystore path name by giving a space in the name. How do i correct this because my apk file is not generated. It is returning an error : Error:Execution failed for task ':app:validateSigningRelease'.

Keystore file C:\Users\Dandon\joycechidiadi_keystore.jks not found for signing config 'externalOverride'.

Have you tried renaming the keystore to the name it is expecting (which the underscore replacing the space)?
