Current version is Xamarin Studio 4.2.3

I click on "Restart and Install Updates".
During the upgrade process the attached error message is presented.

Log from error dialog
I've tried running the installer and got a dialog asking me to check the Android SDK installation where I found that the build-tools was not installed.
Installing those went fine.
Now the installer only want to install Xamarin 3.0.0.
There are still some issues, will report back after reboot.
The Xamarin 3.0.0 installer failed, attaching install log.
The installer asked me to download
and install it manually.
The installer stops with a dialog saying "'1.0.0' is not a valid short file name."
That is the same error I get when I try to uninstall Xamarin.IOS from the control panel in windows.
I can't upgrade only Android SDK since I either must uninstall Xamarin.IOS(broken) or upgrade it(which requires uninstall that is broken).

Screenshot of Error message when uninstalling Xamarin.IOS
New updates have downloaded but the installation still fails.
I've now uninstalled all but Xamarin.iOS.
The rest was removed by deleting all keys in the windows registry containing the word Xamarin.
Will now install again...
Installation failed, will submit new bug for that.
