I get this error when I try to restore or update NuGet package:
Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
Error Error occurred while restoring NuGet packages: Access to the path 'Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.dll' is denied.
It does not matter what is the Xamarin project (forms or native).
I am using VS2017 Community as admin.

    Is the project source code present on a shared drive, have you tried re starting Visual Studio

    The project is created right after installing VS. It is not shared drive. The location of the project is the standard location (by default).
