VS is not debugging

I just create a Xamarin Android single view application and start debugging. The app isn't running on the emulator and VS doesn't really debug the app either.

Some observations;
1. I have two instances of Visual Studio 2017 as well as Visual Studio 2015 Update 3.
2. While I started debugging, the emulator wasn't running.
3. If I start the emulator first from emulator manager, and then deploy and debug, it works.
4. The menu item "Build"/"Cancel" is enabled.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to reproduce this report. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this issue and attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Android project adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
