1. Open VS
2. Go to Tools->Options->Xamarin->Android Settings
3. Click on Check Now link.
4. In Stable Channel click on Click Renew link for Xamarin.Android 4.6.8

Actual Result: Nothing happens when user click on 'Click Renew' for Xamarin.Android 4.6.8 in 'Check For Update' Window.

This has since been fixed and verified by several test results.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds:

All Windows
VS 2012/2010
Xamarin.Android 4.8.1-13
iOS for VS 1.3.272

Now we are getting Check for Update windows after clicking on 'Check Now' link when license is expired on disk. This is the screencast for the same:

Changing the status to Verified

So it doesn't really matter as the RENEW testing has been done, but the bug here was that clicking on the 'Click here to renew' message did nothing.

Your screencast doesn't show the fixed behavior it all, it just gets you up to step 3 of your listed case.
