How to resolve the Android/iOS SDK missing issues after upgrading Visual Studio for Mac Community 8.9.1.

I upgraded my Mac development environment with the latest visual studio for Mac release (Visual Studio for Mac Community 8.9.1), and it suddenly ceased the development environment!


I Googled and found out the issue is common for Xamarin projects with the latest “Visual Studio for Mac Community 8.9.1” version upgrade.


Xamarin.Android Project


When trying to compile a Xamarin.Android project it said that;


/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/Android/Xamarin.Android.Tooling.targets (5,5):
