A sample project that show the build error message

obj/Debug/android/manifest/AndroidManifest.xml: Error APT0000: 11: error: Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'resource' with value '@xml/file_paths'). (APT0000) (TestFileProvider.Droid)

I tried to implement a FileProvider as in https://developer.android.com/reference/android/support/v4/content/FileProvider.html#ProviderDefinition where you define a Provider on AndroidManifest that specifies paths for file sharing. This paths are defined as a xml resource in a xml resource folder and pointed as '@xml/file_paths.xml'. 

Xamarin build generates a Resource.Xml.file_paths but it cannot be called on AndroidManifest.

I created a empty project in Visual Studio for Mac that defines only a FileProvider and this error still persists. Project attached.

You have a typo.

It should be "@xml/files_path" and not "@xml/file_paths".
