Why does Xamarin Update notification keep appearing but does not update?

SORRY - Accidentally posted this twice.

Hi,

In Visual Studio, the notification to say that a new version of Xamarin is available keeps appearing. It says to click to update, but this doesn't appear to do anything. This happens every time I restart Visual Studio.

Has anyone else seen this? Does anyone know how to fix it? (Been happening for about two weeks now.)

Kind wishes ~ Patrick

    Just go to Tools -> Options... -> Xamarin section (scroll all the way down to the bottom on the left panel, it is the 2nd last) and expand it -> Other -> Click on "Check Now" link besides the Notify me about ... updates check box.

    Better be in the Stable updates...

    As for the iOS Doc Set, I think that's a bug. Hope it will be resolved in next update.

    Thanks @ShantimohanElchuri . That fixed it for the Xamarin Update. Do you know how to fix it for the Xamarin iOS Doc Set? That keeps doing the same thing, except that it appears to successfully go through a full download-extract-merge cycle. Then next time I start VS, I get the same notification again.
