Error Screen Shot

I am error with new Xamarin updates in VS-2015.
## Description
When adding a new XAML page to a new Forms Shared project, an error dialog is displayed with the following text:
>Microsoft Visual Studio
>Package Installation Error
>Could not add all required packages to the project. The following packages failed to install from 'C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO 14.0\COMMON7\IDE\EXTENSIONS\IAEIO05K.AB5\Packages':Xamarin.Forms. : Could not install package 'Xamarin.Forms'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets 'Unsupported,Version=v0.0', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.
Though, I am able to build and deploy the project on device but Xaml intelligence is not working.

Updating Xamarin.Forms library from nuget to latest stable didn't work.
