The updater workflow (including all the UI elements from the "Others" tab in Tool-Options-Xamarin) has been removed from Visual Studio 2017, and all the updates are now handled by Willow.
That fixes this issue for Dev15.
Verified this issue in Microsoft visual studio enterprise 2017 d15prerel version 15.3.0 preview 3.0[26611.2.d15prerel] now "others" tab is removed.
Hence closing this bug.
