With JKS keystore you must keep private key and certificates in the same 
keystore. Therefore, you shouldn't import server certificate and inter. 
certificates into brand new keystore, but into the "old" keystore -- the 
one you used to create key pair, and to generate CSR.

I find it strange that Symantec/Verisign didn't mention that explicitly 
in their documentation.

Once you import certificates into the right keystore, check that again.

Search for "Archives".
