I don't know what got upgraded exactly today, I think all the Xamarin components got upgraded via Nuget , but the standard Xamarin Forms template in Visual studio is totally broken. I cannot get it to work and was hoping someone has an idea what is wrong.
First of all I also posted my question on Stack Overflow, so you can refer to that for more details, but I'll post them here as well.

But the main problems is that creating a basic project using Visual studio template no longer works. I can create it, but it will not run due to build errors. In no way have I altered the template project. They should work out of the box.
The main errors are as follows.
