Xamarin Forms Cannot run PCL project

Hi I am trying to do the phoneword (xamarin forms) app given in the xamarin website. But the project is not building, the error shown is attacked in the screenshot below:

enter image description here

Earlier the error message was to extract contents of m2repository to the path "C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Xamarin.Android.Support.Design\23.0.1.3\content"

Help is really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Answer

You hit the famous SDK corruption, so the manual steps to fix are not easy.

I have my post here,

You might need to revise the version numbers to match your case.
