Xamarin Documentation Update does not work: DocSet Folder not found

I had the problem also after last update, and now it appears again so I blog the solution in case it happens next time again…

After upgrading my Xamarin I get the following message when I start Visual Studio again:

Xamarin iOS Documentation Update – Click here to open the Documentation Manager

So I clicked on it a new window appears in the lower right. Unfortunately it contains the following error:

DocSet folder not found in C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp\Xamarin\ …

To fix the problem you just have to delete all the existing Documentation Files. They are located at %localappdata%\Temp\Xamarin , e.g. C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp\Xamarin.
