Is there a documented answer to the error message "Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name 'Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar'?
This is a very poorly worded Android error that has been around for a long time and typically means a mismatch between targeted API version and installed SDK. There seem to be many people that have this problem who, like me, have confirmed that their Xamarin.Android.Support.v7 is up to date and/or matched to their targeted version and proper SDK is installed yet still get the error. Also, the responses elsewhere are flooded with clean/rebuild or uninstall/reinstall type of answers. What is the real issue and what is the real fix?
