Answer: This error means that you have a file or a folder in your Project Solution with content that does not have a Property "COPY ALL" of "COPY IF NEWER" setting.
If you wish not publish certain content in some folder for whatever reason, then right-click on your projects.csproj file, edit it to include
<None Remove="wwwroot\" /> this will leave the folder wwwroot when publishing to production.
