This bug report does not contain a complete error message or log files.  To make a reasonable guess, the issue might be a duplicate of Bug 58789 (and the follow-up Bug 58834).

## Next steps for the reporter

1. Update to today's Xamarin 15.3.2 Servicing Release https://releases.xamarin.com/stable-release-15-3-2/, and check if that resolves the issue.  This release includes candidate fixes for Bug 58789 and Bug 58834.

2. If that does not resolve the issue, please collect and attach back your diagnostic build output:

a. Set "Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > Build and Run > MSBuild project build output verbosity" to Diagnostic.

b. Also enable verbose mtouch output by adding -v -v -v -v under "Project Properties > iOS Build > General [tab] > Additional Options > Additional mtouch arguments".

c. The next time you build the project the diagnostic MSBuild output will now be visible in the Output window.

d. Once you hit the error again, you can save the diagnostic MSBuild output to a file via "File > Save Output As..." and zip it up.

e. Attach back the zipped output file.

Thanks in advance.
