    The only things I can suggest are

    1. Download the latest stable version of Xamarin. You can use the Xamarin Installer or Tools > Options > Xamarin if you are in Visual Studio.
    2. Restart your IDE
    3. Update Forms to 1.5.1 or higher

    Happened to me too. I just edited manually Properties/AndroidManifest.xml

     <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="15" android:targetSdkVersion="23" />

    @nadjib I'm having the same issue. Any idea on how to use your same logic to get the latest target framework installed to read as 6.0 under General - Target Framework? Thanks!
