MonoDevelop is unable to install addin due to the error "The following dependencies couldn't be resolved Ide v2.6.0" after I removed the addin and tried to install it again.
I tried to change the string "<Addin id="Ide" version="2.6.0"/>" to
"<Addin id="Ide" version="2.6"/>"
"<Addin id="Ide" version="188.8.131.52"/>" but none of them works.

Ok. It seems I've got it. The problem is in namespace conflict.
When I specify the namespace "MonoDevelop.Samples.Addins" for my addin and set dependency like this
<Addin namespace = "MonoDevelop.Samples.Addins"...
the system searches "MonoDevelop.Samples.Addins.Ide" instead of "MonoDevelop.Ide" and of course fails. So even if I specify somthing like <Addin id="MonoDevelop.Ide"... it fails anyway because it tries to find "MonoDevelop.Samples.Addins.MonoDevelop.Ide". The only way to make it work is to specify the namespace "MonoDevelop" for all addins. Is this a bug or made by design?
By design, if the addin has a namespace then addin dependencies are resolved relative to that. You must do one of the following:
a) use absolute ids for the addin and its dependencies
b) ensure the namespace only has the part of the id that's common to the addin and its dependencies
c) globally qualify the dependency (using "::")
