Xamarin.Forms / iOS app cannot find the litecore.framework


I’ve updated VS 2019 16.10.2 / XCode 12.5 / newest nuget packages in my Xamarin.Forms app (with Couchbase.Lite 2.8.4).

When I start the debbuger, the Visual Studio tries to deploy the app to the iPhone and breaks with the message:

PackageInspectionFailed: Failed to load Info.plist from bundle at path /var/installd/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installd.staging/temp.8ED3x8/extracted/ROP_App.iOS.app/Frameworks/LiteCore.framework; Extra info about “/var/installd/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installd.staging/temp.8ED3x8/extracted/ROP_App.iOS.app/Frameworks/LiteCore.framework/Info.plist”: Couldn’t stat /var/installd/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installd.staging/temp.8ED3x8/extracted/ROP_App.iOS.app/Frameworks/LiteCore.framework/Info.plist: No such file or directory

Do you have any workaround?


I have no clue what is even going wrong, let alone workarounds. If the only thing that has changed is VS and Xamarin then I’d assert some odd things are happening with the Xamarin toolchain.
