How to update Xamarin?

I am experiencing the problem described by a closed thread.
The icon shows updates are available, but clicking it does not do anything.

    And its the same as as in that thread.

    Tools - options - Xamarin - Other
    Then in the right pane click the Check Now link

    Thank you for the response.
    I am using VS2017. I could not find the option, so I uninstalled Xamarin from Tools > Extensions and Updates.
    My intention is installing Xamarin after uninstalling it. Unfortunately, I am unable to find Xamarin extension now. I searched "Xamarin", but could not find Xamarin for Visual Studio.

  • I have the same problem as hz10, VS2017 doesn't have the Other section under Xamarin options, only Android Settings and iOS Settings, neither of which has the Check Now link.

  • Me too, same In Visual Studio 2017 RC 2 the Other Option was remove and now I can't update Xamarin.
