Steps to reproduce:
Condition: User's license on disk has an expiration date before the release date of the update
1. Open VS
2. Go to Tools->Options->Xamarin->Android Settings
3. Click on Check Now link.
4. In Stable Channel click on Click Renew link for Xamarin.Android 4.6.8
Actual Result: Nothing happens when user click on 'Click Renew' for Xamarin.Android 4.6.8 in 'Check For Update' Window.
Expected Result: Either it should redirect to login page or it should prompt to Purchase, or downgrade after clicking on 'Click Renew' link

NOT A REGRESSION: never seen this using old builds of Xamarin.Android
This has since been fixed and verified by several test results.
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:
iOS for VS 1.3.272
Now we are getting Check for Update windows after clicking on 'Check Now' link when license is expired on disk. This is the screencast for the same:
Changing the status to Verified
So it doesn't really matter as the RENEW testing has been done, but the bug here was that clicking on the 'Click here to renew' message did nothing.
Your screencast doesn't show the fixed behavior it all, it just gets you up to step 3 of your listed case.
