    Please create a default Android app with Xamarin for Visual Studio 2015 and build this default app to check whether it could be built successful.

    If the default app build successful, I'm afraid that there has any problem when your create your app when referring to the xamarin website. Please provide the xamarin website link and the detailed steps about how you do, which can help us check whether there has any problems on your operations.

    If the default app also get this issue, I'm afraid that there has any problem on Visual Studio environment. Please tell us which android API you have installed on Visual Studio 2015 and which version of Windows version do you use.

    If you installed Android API 24, please try uninstall it and try rebuild your app again.

    In addition, please try repair your Visual Studio to check whether this issue related to Visual Studio installation.
