VST build agent for Android fails to build after Forms 2.5.0.91635 upgrade

Hi,

We have a build issue that happens on our VST build agent only. After upgrading to Xamarin.Forms 2.5.0.91635 version, the local builds are fine. The problem is resources attributes compilation

Error CS0117: 'Resource.Attribute' does not contain a definition for 'MediaRouteControllerWindowBackground'
Error CS0117: 'Resource.Attribute' does not contain a definition for 'mediaRouteBluetoothIconDrawable'

These are just a few of many errors that point out to the attribute definitions missing.

The build engine version:

My problem seems to be that build task does not find the correct android level:

I am targeting Level 26, and I have it installed on VST agent, my resources are compiled with:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\build-tools\26.0.3\aapt.exe package -f -m -M D:\B\V11_temp\usura1uo.q3a\manifest\AndroidManifest.xml ...

So, I think the reason is that somehow the build is still using outdated sdk for the build but aapt is using the newer resource compiler?

How do I get the VST agent to refresh/update to the latest version? Could this be as simple as machine reboot :smile:

Thanks.
