compile error

working on a xamarin forms project, everything compiles fine. I update VS 2015 with KB3165756 and I get the error in attachment. The project that throws the error is a PCL project.

Xamarin and Forms nuget packages are all up to date.

Can you please add the following information?

1. Xamarin Logs
Go to the menu "Help - Xamarin - Zip Logs". Please attach that zip file to the bug report.
If you can connect to the Mac, then please run that command being connected to the Mac, that way we'll get the Mac logs as well.
If you cannot connect to the Mac, can you please zip and attach the content of the log files from the Mac located at "~/Library/Logs/Xamarin-4.3/"?.

2. Environment information
Go to the menu "Help - About Microsoft Visual Studio" and press "Copy Info". Please paste that info into a Bugzilla comment.

3. Diagnostic Build Output
Go to the menu "Tools - Options" and from the left panel: "Projects And Solutions - Build And Run" and change "MSBuild Output Verbosity" to "Diagnostic", and then build the solution. Copy the Build Output from the Output window and share it (maybe in a gist or as a zip file).

As we've introduced several improvements around this area, I'll mark the bug as resolved fixed.
Please feel free to reopen it if you can still reproduce the issue with current bits.
