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.
Please find it
