Uploading a new version of an Android app to Google Play and I'm seeing this error

Version code 1 has already been used. Try another version code.

There are three areas to observe:

Version Code: {whole integer}
Version Name: {String}
Version Name Suffix: {Integer}

Currently, my settings are:

Version Code: 2
Version Name: 2.0.1
Version Name Suffix: 1

While that is true for the app, cross-check the Play Store and what version is currently set in that environment.  The details there were

Release Latest version
6(2) 6
1.0.4 5

Therefore, my next version needs to be greater than 6.

Version Code: 7
Version Name: 2.0.1
Version Name Suffix: 1
