Xamarin project has seemingly lost reference to Mono for Android

I was having many errors with my Xamarin project not being able to recognize the Android namespace and read that the solution was to delete the contents of the /bin folder and let it re-build from scratch.

I did that and now I am getting the error here: Error. The only thing I’ve found is that a small number of other people have had this error and there is no solution in their threads. Under references the path to Mono.Android.dll is correct (C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio2017CommunityCommon7IDEReferenceAssembliesMicrosoftFrameworkMonoAndroidv8.0Mono.Android.dll), and the file exists. I can remove the reference and re-add it and will still see the same error.

Does anyone know how I can fix this and get back to my previous set of mysterious time-consuming Xamarin errors?
