I am trying to upload a managed package, it is failing validation and complaining that my permission set references the blng__Payment__c object that has a M-D relationship with Account.

<Permission Set Name> references Payment that has M-D relationship with Account.

Searching online it is said that M-D relationship are not supported for managed packages, which is fine.

The problem is I don't have control over blng__Payment__c, that's not part of my package, I only reference it in some component I uses. So I am not sure how I can fix it?

The relevant documentation from the ISVforce Guide is About Permission Sets and Profile Settings:

Do they [Permission Sets] include standard object permissions?
No. Also, you can’t include object permissions for a custom object in a master-detail relationship where the master is a standard object

Emphasis mine. You can ship master-detail objects, but you cannot permission them in a packaged permission set. The fact that this object is owned by a different managed package doesn't change how these manageability rules are enforced.

You'll have to remove these object permissions from your Permission Set.

  • On the bright side, that error used to throw a GACK, so getting a helpful error is something at least Sep 11, 2020 at 20:22
  • Yup it worked, thanks a lot Sep 14, 2020 at 20:58
