Thanks for the report!




## Notes to the Xamarin team

The cause of this issue is in brief related to the change in the package numbering in Visual Studio 2015 Tools for Xamarin version 4.8.0.  The installer package .msi now ends with a longer number than before (like "4.8.0.1166386" rather than "4.8.0.752").  For the moment, the updater service has been adjusted server-side so that this problem is temporarily resolved for the specific current build version.



### Possible improvements

As I understand it from chatting with Tim, the best option to resolve this issue in general (rather than working around it manually build-by-build) is most likely to switch the updater client within the Visual Studio Tools for Xamarin package to parse to a `long` rather than an `int` when it gets the version ID from the updater service.  This will mean the updater service can use the full version number as the version ID.

It turns out there was a slightly earlier report of this with a few more users on it, so I will mark this bug as a duplicate of that earlier bug.
