VS Community 2015 + Xamarin.Forms = template errors

since I lost my high school license for VS Professional I had to use Web/Desktop free versions.
Xamarin works with Professional/Community/Enterprise version as I know, so I decided to download VS Community 2015 with Xamarin from official site

My problem is: after installation of VS with Xamarin I try to create a new project: C# -> Cross-Platform -> Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Portable). When creating, I got 6 errors about templates: main, Droid, iOS, UWP, Windows and one more and my solution is empty. I tried to reinstall whole package - no effect. Anyone had the problem?

    VS 2015 won't be receiving any more updates now that VS2017 is released.
    You probably want to remove VS2015 and use the current version VS2017.

    @ArturKonstanciak What error did you get? Could you post the error details and screenshots?

    Unfortunately, I didn't make the screenshots before I deleted it. Hopefully I installed VS Community 2017 with Xamarin additionals as @ClintStLaurent suggested and I get it working now.

    Anyway, I will try to remind what kind of error was it and post it soon.
