installing the updated package

Xamarin.Forms is not compatible with Xamarin.Android 23.4.0 as the constraint for Xamarin.Forms is Xamarin.Android 23.3, so after updating to Xamarin.Forms the build always failed

Same error !
Nugets package manager reveal the same error incompatibility.
Comment 2 Stephan Blaurock 2016-06-27 19:14:57 UTC
I have also the same error by updating Xamarin.Forms in my Android project :-(
Comment 3 Matei Radu 2016-06-30 10:50:55 UTC
Same error. If you have already installed Xamarin.Forms 2.3.0.x and you try to update Xamarin.Android to 23.4 it will automatically downgrade Xamarin.Forms to 1.5.1.x during the process.

Hi this isn't a bug in Xamarin.Forms, it's explicit on release notes that Xamarin.Forms depends on specific versions of Xamarin.Android support libraries. 

When updating a project one should update the Xamarin.Forms nuget and it will install the  necessary dependencies of  Xamarin.Forms android.

Warm regards
