Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2015
Version 14.0.25431.01 Update 3
Xamarin.iOS 10.3.1.8 (7beaef4)

to my project file:
The "Xamarin.Messaging.Tasks.CreateArchiveDirectory" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.Messaging.Tasks.dll. Confirm that the declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask.

Fixed in version 188.8.131.525 (master)
